Here's what I painted last night...I am pretty happy with it. It looks a thousand times better than the last woman I did. The skin tone is still off, but getting better. I just need more practice.
|This painting of Tori makes her look a bit older than she actually is.|
She had a mass of curly hair and a very detailed earing on.
|All of the things I learned about drawing in Sadie Valeri's class|
(looking at angles, making "connections" with parts of the face,
etc.) have come in handy here. My drawings are more accurate
and I draw quicker since there are less corrections.
For those of you wondering about my studio...It's still in the process of being built. Ben got the basic structure of the painting racks done. He just needs to add in the bottom slats and then attach the second level. It's much harder to build a studio when you have a full-time job also. Hopefully by this weekend they will get done.
|This is the botton half of the racks. They will hold paintings up to 42" in length.|
|This flat surface is the bottom of the second level of the rack which |
will hold pieces that are 26" in length.
