I’ve been practicing drawing faces for the past couple of months. I was terrible and I’m still not that great, but I’m a little better than I was two months ago.
One thing I’ve noticed with each portrait is how different eyebrows are. Specifically, the inside edge of the eyebrow, closest to the nose is in a different place on everyone.
For some people, it extends over the nose a little, while for others the eyebrow doesn’t even start until you’re halfway out over their eye. There is a massive spectrum from face to face.
I guess it just got me thinking about all the little things that stare us in the face (literally) that go unnoticed.
Maybe we’d all be a little better off and happier if we took a few moments each day and just noticed something that we take for granted.
