facial feature study

Artist Statement:

The subject of this drawing is facial features from magazines. The material that I used was graphite. I chose this design because I really liked the facial expression each image was making. The elements of art that I used was value to add realistic shading to each face.The principle of art that I used was variety in the way that I changed the facial expressions on each face. The composition rule that I used were informal balance because all of the faces are scattered around the page. The meaning behind this artwork is showing different expressions that people can show visually. My project didn't really evolve because I chose the faces at the beginning of the project and I stuck with it. If I was going to go back and change anything I would add more shadowing and details into a few of the faces.
