Pencil sketch from daily paper (work in progress).
Another great model for Wednesday Evening Portrait Group. Alla Prima painting done using water mixable oils.
Our 1st portrait models. Still a work in progress but very pleased with what I managed to capture on the night.
Own image. The profile of the pirate came from my imagination.
Do many people paint/sketch from patterns and or shadows they see?
Do you enjoy creating a sketch and see it as a real person when you have completed the work?
Male? Female? These are only two categories and the rainbow spectrum of more shades exists. This is a “person”.
Really fast sketch from the imagination.
Not a beauty contest winner but maybe it has its own charm or mystery.
Sometimes you only get an hour!
Small sketch with Bic pen
“World Famous Shakespearean Actor”
Can you see and feel her desire to perform to the best of her ability?
The female actor portrayed is a purely imaginative character. No model was used. I wanted to create a confident person; a performer dressed with full stage make-up and in costume. She is looking through the peep-hole in the stage curtain at the assembled audience. Their excitation is palpable to her. It excites her and this increases her desire to deliver a stunning performance just for them.
