Eyes to the West

I can see some places to tweak a bit such as where the edge of the hat brim kisses the frame on the right, same with the feather. I'm sure enjoying learning how to use this technique with the white clayboard. it's 9x12.I'm toying with the idea of a sepia wash.

Re: Eyes to the West

The whites photographed a bit too bright. In RL they are a little greyer and I see where I need to redo the ear lobe.

Re: Eyes to the West

Harry, Sean, Kendal, Patrick and icypinkshimmer thankyou so much. Icypinkshimmer, welcome aboard.
Patrick this is not Willie. I tend to stay away from celebrity images due to copyright issues, though I would so enjoy doing Willie's wonderful face. Here is a pic of Willie and the reference that was my inspiration.I didn't want to just copy my reference, so made changes to turn it into the grizzled old-timer remembering his westering days.

Re: Eyes to the West

Lynn, I so appreciate your comment as that is what I'm liking in this technique. It's scratch art but painterly.

Re: Eyes to the West

Painterly and scratchboard don't always seem to go side by side - you did it. What a mustache!

Re: Eyes to the West

TJ, are you using a technique similar to that of Charlie Ewing? If so it's a great technique. I've tried it a few times and enjoyed it a lot. It's great for plein aire. You've done a very nice job with your image getting the lights and darks down and the addition of the warm background really bring him out. Working with whiteboard offers a lot of possibilities.
