I love portraits, looking at portraits, reading about portrait painters. However, if you take a look at this blog, my available paintings or Pinterest page, you won’t see many paintings including people, faces, or figures. That is about to change. No, I’m not suddenly changing direction, I’m just giving myself permission to swim where I have only waded.
This is a little sketch I did this week, just for fun. We have been drawing faces in my 7-8th grade classes, so I tried out all my do’ s and don’ts one evening to see if I was missing any important points. Not sure why I started in purple. After doing a few in colored pencil I will move to gouache, then oil. I will post process pictures on Instagram.
