Something Sour #106
I have to thank my husband for the idea for this drawing. I was going to do these candies that my kids love, Warheads, they're called. But, then my husband suggested drawing our son's face after he tasted something sour. Now, my youngest son is notorious for making faces. In almost every picture that he's ever been in, at the last moment, he pulls a face. We have group soccer pics with him in the back row with his tongue sticking out and his face all screwed up. We've had to warn him before picture taking time, and stand there and glare at him to make him behave. So, it was just natural to ask Dave to pose for me. He's the ultimate poser. I wanted to do this drawing from life, but Dave couldn't hold his face like this for long, so I snapped a pic of him. I did the drawing sitting in front of the computer and just sketching quickly so I wouldn't be tempted by the details again. I put in more than I wanted to, but I was afraid if I didn't shade it, it would look too flat. I'm happy with it! What do y'all think?
