We had so many wonderful Portraits last month -- each month just keeps getting better and better (if that's possible!!!!!!!).

I am looking so forward to seeing everyone's works for the month of February.

Val - A couple of drawings from my portrait drawing class - hope that's OK.

The first is a bit less than A2 in size, on heavy white cartridge paper. Clutch pencil (main head) and 6B graphite stick (background)

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/04-Feb-2006/48045-web_female020206.jpg

The second is a crop of a larger drawing and is just 2.5" high - trying to draw somebody's face that size when they're sitting about 15 feet away on a plinth is somewhat challenging!

This is a commission I just finished of two children. It is pastel done with hard and soft pastels on canson paper. Ive attached the photo I used. Any suggestions. Im not sure about the hand. I thought I had done it correctly but it seems to look more like an elbow than a bent hand or is it that it is just cut off and doesnt give the entire picture.

Gilberte
02-05-2006, 03:30 PM
If you hadn't mentioned the hand I wouldn't have noticed. Their eyes and chubby cheeks attracted all my attention.
Beautiful.

Terence - what a beautiful portrait! Cute kids.. well done!:clap:

Im working on this at the moment.. its not really a portrait as such, just something I wanted to try out. It's going to hang along with my other 5 'women' in a bit of a mural thing. Hubby is going to be surrounded by women before too long! :wink2:

Hmm.. just noticed you can hardly see the Moko on her chin... it is a tattoo.. it just looks like a fuzzy mess here.. lol

Terry -- Your Portrait of the two children is gorgeous. You have made a beautiful job of it, and if you hadn't mentioned the hand, I wouldn't have noticed it either. Great work. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

SallyAnn -- Nice work, and your mural sounds great. When you get this up, I would love you to post a picture of the mural. Sounds like poor hubby is going to be the odd one out. :eek: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you, to all the people here who helped me to get things right. I had to go over the whole thing with color to freshen it up. The nose gave me a fit. :( I am going to call this done and frame it. It was a good learning experience. Everybody puts such good work in this thread. :D

It's a little darker here than it should be.

nah, I think I'll go fix the nose.

I got a stunning new computer from Santa this year, but it has taken a while to get it configured so I can do all the things I'm accustomed to do. Anyway, life class at the museum has started up again and I think I got a successful study done last week. I'm posting here to get comment and critique. All comments welcome. Work is done with Nupastel on Canson Mitientes paper (smooth side) full size.

Andagail I didn't even know you worked in color. that is outstanding!

The only thing I've done in the way of portraiture this month is this study of Armin Mersmann that I did as the demo for a class that I'm teaching. I've got a couple of others currently in the works though.:)

It is great to have another artist in the forum with the same surname as mine :clap: And not only that, but you have the same Christian name as my husband. I think it's a great name (but then I'm biased :D ).

thankyou ..thankyou....Valchina and LgHumphry...think i'm getting a bit better at this the more i'm doing...still need to work on colour and simplification..want to get away from GREY!..am going to experiment next with using warmer colours and a more dramatic contrast in tone on the face by not going too light which makes painting the face more difficult..i'll see..going to be fun trying..ty both once again for your kind words helps enormously.

Mario
02-16-2006, 10:34 PM
Hi Larubia, Having done the 'greys' as well as you have is a BIG plus..perhaps you could spike the chroma a little in the passage from light to dark but your portrait is really stunning.
Only, the ear is too pronounced..easily covered with some of that rubia.

Terence: Adorable children!! Love their cheeks and smiles.

Pat: You can tell they are related- their hair ties it all together- I hope you were well paid for this as it looks liek it was a lot of work.. wonderful though.

Andagail: it is a really great portrait-- you have improved a LOT!! FIXED that nose--yes. I am treasuring my drawing BTW. :)

Rob: All I can say is WOW-- quite an undertaking and another artist with the patience of a saint.

Larubia-- awesome- I want to paint like YOU!!!! Mario is right about the ear although I did not see it until he pointed it out.

This is my work from this morning. Alla prima except for a bit of finishing touches when I held it up to a mirror.

Hi, Troy. Surprised to see you in here. :D I started in watercolors then pastels before I realized that I need to know how to draw. I'm picking it up.

Nora! Hi! Good to hear from you. I've been thinking about your portrait lately. I am finally taking that drawing 1 class and I'm "learning" that charcoal technique. I'm glad you still like your portrait.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I am learning so much. All these great inspirations on here. :)

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/18-Feb-2006/74129-11jensmall.jpg

Yes, you've caught a beautiful expression!.. just open the nostrils a little..let a little light in..that won't hurt..and maybe a touch of blood (pink) where it would show on the surface of the skin..the last suggestion is that the hair is always a reflector of light..so, a little more light up there on the viewers leftside and the top of the head..otherwise, yes do not fiddle with it.:cat:

Wow - what an impressive lot of portraits this month. I'm not going to single anybody out as they're all really really good.

And it's very rewarding to see people working in so many different mediums!

Thanks to Val, Gilberte and Mario for your kind comments

I missed my "Drawing a Head" class last week due to traffic! However this is this week's drawing - and this is the first time I've only done one head in the class. It's large as well - the image is on A2 paper (23.5" x 15.5") and as before has been completed using a mechanical pencil to do lots of fine hatching - supplemented with a 6B graphite stick for some darker values and the background.

thanks for the comments on the portrait.
learned some more things this time.
I had told my wife to put on a top that didnt have too many folds since the last time I did a portrait of her, every time she sat down after a break the folds were different.
Learned two more things. One is to make sure you got the correct proportions - while it does look somewhat like my wife, the eyes, in particular, are not spaced correctly. Also Ill make sure I have the hair pretty much done if the model is coming back another day. When my wife sat for me the next day, her hair was in a different style. Since I hadnt paid too much attention to the shapes and highlights in the hair, I had a hard time with it on the second sitting.

Teanne- love the colors you used
Jay- charming and you caught a wonderful expression
Twod - wish I had your imagination!
Jarubia- a professional portrait- terrific
Katherine- well done portrait and I love how you did the hair.

Hi folks, have been missing in action for a long time on this site. Recently decided to try my hand again at a portrait, second attempt. I am primarily a historical landscape painter, although I have also tried a few dog portraits. This is of my Dad who died in 1987, so I had to do it from a black/white photo. I have been concentrating on the face, still have more to do with the clothing, but this is 4 days work. Oils on canvas, 18x24 inches.

I've been lurking so often this month and with all the excellent paintings shown February's posts are among the very best I've seen.
Bravo to all (with a little envy .....) !

I haven't posted on the Portraiture forums before but thought I would jump on in with the painting I just finished of my young daughters. I've only been painting a little while and actually this is only my 10th painting I have done. The last 3 paintings I have done have been portraits :) . I just really enjoy that feeling like you are moulding the face when you draw/paint people. I love looking at everyones portraits, they really are inspiring. I posted this on the Oil painting February monthly too.

Patrick, I find your style very appealing and very painterly. Well done.

I can't believe that I posted a Reply to the last three Images yesterday, and it's not here anywhere -- must be floating around in cyberspace somewhere. :mad:
