Re: cafe michelangelo ..Jan 2017

Im taking an art workshop on painting faces with karabullockart.com/

I started in at week 3. Mixed media portrait from a photo ref., which was provided. Focus on tonal values.




12 by 9 ins. Mixed media.

Today is week 4...the course is year long. Hope I can keep up!

Re: cafe michelangelo ..Jan 2017

Nice portrait! I can take a reasonable stab at drawing portraits, but I have mostly been too terrified to try painting one. :-)

In the meantime, another Dutch landscape (acrylic on board, 20 x 25 cm):



And another charcoal sketch:



I think I should try drawing a portrait with charcoal - it might serve to help me eventually paint one, because I have noticed that working with charcoal sticks is really more like painting than drawing. But I shudder at the very thought of trying to draw something as difficult and subtle as the mouth using a thick, unwieldy stick of charcoal... :-)

Re: cafe michelangelo ..Jan 2017

I'm painting u[ a storm. Haven't tried one in oil for ages, so here we go:



Oil on board, 25 x 20 cm (which is about 10 x 8 inch, for all those 'Murricans). I think the thing perhaps ended up a bit too hazy and ethereal, but on the whole I am pleased to see I haven't gone completely rusty with oils...

LOvely work Brian. The Dutch tulip fields are vibrant with colour. I love the tonal study on the pears. and the oil of the tree looks really good.

Thanks. I am thinking of doing a whole series of charcoal sketches, and small oils in the "daily painter" tradition. I should have been doing it long ago, but got distracted, as always. :-)
