A blog about my process of writing and illustrating a fantasy/sci-fi novel series called Sansarian Scripts. As an art educator and multi-media artist an enhanced book app is where my lifes ponderings and intrigues can best come together. It is new a territory for people like me so I'm trying to leave bread crumbs for future interactive enhanced book writers. Pick up the crumbs... there is lots of butter and garlic! LeAnne Iverson
Subway daily Portrait
With everything portrait I feel is about finished I take a photo. This condenses the image and sometimes pronounces a problem to where I can then see it. I then go back and rework it until I feel the problem is solved. Then I change the photo to a Grey scale and check the balance of darks and lights. This helps with accuracy in shaping forms and determining foreground and background. In this piece I feel the the background is confused too much with the foreground and doesn't have enough movement in and out of the piece. Here's a color shot to show how this process helps with understanding the elements of a Mixed Media Portrait.
