Thursday, August 25, 2016 - Chaos Theory Portrait No. 1

A continuation of the series of posts exploring mark-making.  The next few portraits are drawn with marks that appear random, not aligning with facial features.  However the marks are made while carefully observing the subject so they do carry meaning.  Eventually, with enough marks, the drawing becomes coherent, although sometimes you have to squint or look at it from far away!
