WDE Dec 6, 2019 Duane and Medicine Man attempts

Hi everybody! Thanks for hosting, Valri!

I haven't drawn any people in so very long, but I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Duane is awful, but I tried to stay loose and use a larger brush. He's 5" x 5" watercolor. He took 35 minutes. For those of you that don't know, this is my deceased husband. He has been gone over two years now, but I know he would be laughing because this makes his face look thin.



The medicine man was a little more fun. Watercolor and Copic .3 pen. 5" x 6" - One hour.



Thanks for looking.

Re: WDE Dec 6, 2019 Duane and Medicine Man attempts

the way you've painted Duane is a story. those eyes are looking at you. the face looks slightly out of focus the way it did when you looked him in the eyes: it is a striking portrait of an emotion.
the colors and outline make a strong medicin man. both of these works look straightforward but are complex and hide mysteries.

I agree with ronsu... there are stories here, emotion, some mysteries... in both portraits. Tenderness and humor in Duane, the beautiful colors and kind eyes say it. The medicine man looks like someone to contend with.

Really well done, Beth.

Both have a light, bright, upbeat feel. You have made the most of the colour possibilities. Duane is an excellent subject, a face full of character.

You've captures the warmth and humor in Duane's eyes, and the medicine man displays your signature style so well!
