Pattie: Fairy Locks

Pattie wears these wonderfully colorful collections of yarn tied into her pony tails and today’s session was all about reproducing the one she is wearing accurately.

Life Drawing: Gary

I sat closer to the model today because I wanted to see the subtleties of color in the models skin. I definitely saw more color but I’m not sure I captured it.

Pattie: Background

I started on the background today to get away from the portrait for a bit. Her face is not done yet but it is good to work on something a bit different for a while.

Pattie: Oil

I’ve started with oil now and I’m taking my time, I don’t want to rush this as it is the first time I’m trying oil over acrylic.

Pattie: Neck

Painting in the areas surrounding the head really adds depth to the painting so far, I’m even happier with the face as I start on the neck.

Portrait Session 4

In today’s portrait session I decided to try acrylic, at first I thought it would be fun, but I found it very frustrating.

Life Drawing: Steven

Normally I move around the room and do a different drawing every 20 minutes but today I felt like staying in one place and working on one drawing the whole session.
