Let's face It 2017 Week 4


Still loving this class.  The above painting is my effort in a lesson from Juna Biagioni. Her style is much softer and looser than mine - though loosening up is one of my goals. Despite my not being very "loose" it was a very interesting technique to learn.  The focus for these first few weeks of the class is on values and once the values part of this lesson was completed we learned about glazing for a touch of color. Obviously I am having difficulty with the eyes more than anything else. I had to redo them multiple times and finally had to decide this one was finished.  :)

Hope you are all having a great week! I'd loveto see what you have been working on.

  5. It's a beautiful drawing and the imperfection of the eyes makes it look like a real portrait and not a fake drawing because in life we are never perfect!

  6. The eyes suit her, and I love how you did the hair, the thin flyaway hairs fit perfectly with the softer style.
