Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

What's on your easel (or in your sketchbook) this month?

Show a finished portrait or one in any stage of progress (WIP = Work in Progress). This thread is for showcasing your work; others will only critique your work if you request it.

So please show us what you've been up to this month. We'd love to see it.

If you welcome Comments and/or Critique, let us know when you post (ie: "Cs & Cs welcome")

Even if you have already shown it in the main portraiture forum, you are invited to showcase it in this thread, also, as this thread will remain in the Library Archives. (Portrait Swap WIP shots most welcome, too! Also Self-portraits... anything portrait)

And be sure to check out previous Portrait Galleries in the Archives. Lots of great work in there!

So... let's get those portraits set up in the gallery....

Very nice rajantsr, full of youthful energy!

Here are two recent studies of live models, one academic, and the other more spontaneous. Oil on linen. C&C welcome.

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

Thanks llawrence. This was a very quick oil sketch with a palette knife. I do try to alternate between classical and experimental styles. I appreciate the feedback!

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

Raeburn, your spontaneity is electrifyingly vibrant. I agree with Louis: do more! I love both your styles, and it keeps you limber to go from one to another!

I finally think I'm through with doing the "Portrait of the Artist in a Flat Cap." Here are both the original and my copy. C&C welcomed and encouraged; I'll never be able to paint the Master without feeling totally inadequate!

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

rajantsr: lively figures and expressions
raeburn: super studies. I particularly like the youth with the blue highlights. Spontaneous and lively.
nancyMP: you've caught the contemplative expression and the colours well.

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

I'm taking a bit of a liberty here. I've uploaded versions of these to WC previously, some months ago in fact. But recently I've acquired a new monitor which has shown me how 'bleached' my previous uploads have been. I had to lighten them a lot to even see them on my old monitor! Something wrong there and I've no idea what it was.
Anyway the upshot is that I don't think anyone viewing the site has seen any of my work in anything like its true colour. hence the new postings. I hope that is OK.

First from a portrait challenge from last year....



secondly from an All Media challenge from a long time back.....
