next project

I’m done (just for now) with portraits – so very grateful to my models. I learned so much. Next project will be to translate my charcoal figure drawings into paint. Always nice to have a direction.

models!

So delighted and humbled by generous friends who have donated their time to be a model for me, as I learn to paint. Four! Four! friends have come in. I finally got smart and asked my fourth friend for permission to include his work-in-progress in this blog and he generously agreed.

I’m trying for a balance of likeness and a modern approach to detailing the planes of each face with color. Trying/learning are important words here!

Progress on Model # 4 – I cannot get the photos in the order I want! Top is most recent, middle is first pass, bottom was second. Make sense?
