I do enjoy a challenge -- this will be my first figure ever! I worked on this for about an hour last evening and know it'll be a few days before I get back to him. Cute little guy, on 140LB CP Seth Cole water color paper with a #2 pencil, 9"x12". Thanks for the beautiful images Valri!

First figure ??!? Oh my gosh, looks like you do them all the time ! Wonderful likeness already - I think you have found a new niche !

Here he is after 2 1/2 hours. The face isn't good and other parts need some work. I'll probably finish this one. Thanks for sharing him with us Valri. 9"x12" 140lb CP junky paper with W&N water colors.

To be your 1st one ever, this is remarkable! Lovely handling of the paint, too!

great first portrait Kate

Thanks for the kind comments about Zaiden. This one took me about 1 1/2 hours -- W&N watercolors on US Art Supply 140lb paper, about 8"x11".

I think if you darkened Z-man's hair you could call it DONE....and done well!
04-06-2015, 08:06 PM
AND....I love the knives! Such obscure subject matter but you made it fantastic!
04-06-2015, 09:02 PM
I like this one, too!

Thanks Kay and Valri -- I had fun!

Both nice Kate you did very well on the figure
04-07-2015, 11:39 AM
Wonderful job on the figure. Both of them are very well done.

So I took Zaiden to my watercolor class today and my instructor suggested a couple of improvements, including darkening his hair as you suggested Valri. So here he is -- my final, final.

I especially like the knives. Such a delicate painting.
04-08-2015, 04:21 AM
You did a great hob on the z man and I love your knives
Both are well done and I like your soft still life too Kate.
04-08-2015, 03:33 PM
I'd never believe this was a first figure if you hadn't said!
It's really good - your observation of the ref. is good - well done ......... like the knives too :)
04-08-2015, 07:09 PM
Fantastic for a first time drawing and painting of a figure and the knives are also nicely done Kate.
04-08-2015, 08:17 PM
The boy is really good and the knives, etc. too
04-09-2015, 09:29 AM
