Mette,

Nicely done! I'm glad you noticed the ear, too. Guidelines make it much easier to see things in relation to one another.

I like the way you have repeated the blue colors in her blouse, necklace and in the hair, too. It gives the painting a nice harmony!

I guess that when I saved your painting onto my computer and then posted it back onto WC, the colors did change a bit. I didn't manipulate it at all!

Don

Re: ESP - Portrait & Figure Fundamentals - Lesson 3: Measuring

Nice, Mette.

I've heard that every single time one saves a jpg, it changes and some info is lost.

Don, will not get to class until after the weekend (had already saved two of the portraits long before, so yes, I'm preparing, and GMTA too!), when I've recovered from it, the weekend that is... no, not partying, going to an event that will be fun but tiring.

Yes, JPGs are nice and small and easy to upload and download, but they do lose information with each save. I can't say I've ever noticed any deterioration, but I do save all photos of my own artwork in TIF format. When preparing my own work for making prints, for example, I do a lot of color correcting, cropping, contrast manipulation, etc, so I might save the file many times. So I would recommend to others that they save their own work in a format other than JPG.

Have a nice weekend, Charlie. We look forward to your upcoming posts!

Don

Re: ESP - Portrait & Figure Fundamentals - Lesson 3: Measuring

Thank´s *Violet*!
The halo effect....in real life it does not have this halo effect.the color is the same in the all area on the left on her head. I think it is the resault of my camera-light .The photo was taken indoors with a lamp over the painting...I could not get it to light up al the painting at once. So in real life it is lighter on topp of the left side.( the same color everywhere on the background).
Mette.

Mette, Your change of colour warms up the portrait immensely and infuses it with a strong sense of life. Well drawn.

Re: ESP - Portrait & Figure Fundamentals - Lesson 3: Measuring

Well Don...I was determined to come up with SOMETHING. I began to get the feel of using the pastels and had a go at this:



I already can see the nose needs work especially on her left side....the face looks a bit out of kilter. I measured with my thumb/brush method the thirds etc. and eye measurements across.

Leaving the main areas for correction up to you Don. But I have probably overworked this one.

Kathy
