I skipped posting for a few weeks, but here is my last portrait from Erik’s Class.
Overall quite happy, too bad for the misplaced eye.
Can’t really take the merit for the good part, I got help from “above” 😀
After being on vacation for a week (aka no drawing with charcoal) I feel a bit rusty. I sketched this cast I have to get the ball rolling again.
I had previously painted it in oils as mass tone exercise, here: Mass Drawing + Oil Painting Chapter 6 Tone Exercises.
This is my entry for the second month of the Master Skill Building Challenge at the Watts Atelier of the Arts.
It’s actually the very first complete portrait in charcoal I draw, and I admit I am satisfied enough with the result. It’s by no means perfect, of course. I could have pushed the darks a bit more, and the nose is definitely smaller than the original (heh…).
Overall though, it’s decent enough to participate this month’s challenge.
Here follows the whole WIP, as always good luck to all participants!
Here is my final piece for the Watts Atelier Skill Building Challenge 20. Yes, it’s Murray!
He’s very proud of having been chosen as subject for this challenge, hopefully I will get at least a mention.
Below is the whole wip, starting from the very first lay in to the last partial of week 4 (it’s a monthly challenge)
Good luck everyone!
