Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

I worked on it more today -- here are 2 more WIP shots:



While I think I could darken up the values on her face, I'm going to leave it here for now, as I need to start the oil sketch of her.
C's & C'swelcome!

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

Thanks, Sandra!
Alas, I got to the workshop late and lost my spot. So I sat on the other side and did a drawing of her other profile. Just as well I didn't paint, because I was having a bad day of it. Will work on it from photos and see if I can squeeze in that spot next week.
Looking forward to your cafe portrait.

Yvonne -- wow! This is a great start on the double-portrait! Please show us updates... pretty-please!

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

Thanks for you support and kind thoughts, Sandra!
Your daughter-in-law drawing is lovely!
Yvonne -- Mucha, eh? Thanks! Funny, I just bought a book on Mucha but haven't had the time to sit down and savour it. You give me an idea (to add to my list of art-things-to-do) of doing another version of Nicole a la Mucha -- could be fun! Love Art Nouveau!

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011



I thought I'd post my drawing for some C/C. This portrait is a a subject for an online portraiture course I am taking with London Art College. It is unfinished but I am frustrated with it. It has been critiqued by my tutor and I can see the exaggeration in certain areas. Many thanks for the info in the January Challenge - don't think I have time to do the challenge but can but try..

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

Sally -- it looks like you've put a lot of work into this. How many hours so far? Looking good, though as I haven't seen the reference photo it's hard to know how it compares, proportion-wise. Thanks for posting this.

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

Wow, Sally -- that is some reference photo!

Last week at portraiture I arrived late, so missed the spot I'd had the previous week (as two others had set up there and started their work).
So, I drew Nichole from the other side. Had a bad start -- had to start over. Finished it at home, looking at photo references. Here is the drawing, in graphite, in my sketchbook:

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

I think it's beautiful. Lovely soft delicate touch, sensitivity and lighting. Good use of pencil too.!!

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

I think I am pretty much finished with my painting now. Need to look at it for a few days to see if I want to fix anything. Title is Reading Bronte



It is 24 x 30" oil on canvas.
Yvonne

Re: Portrait Gallery--January 2011

Lovely painting, Yvonne!
It has a very classical look to it. I tfind this pose is reminiscent to one in a Renoir painting.
