I wanted to draw a pretty woman today. I’ve come to the conclusion that they are pretty boring to draw, and hard too because there’s not much to latch onto in the way of shadows wrinkles or muscle differences. Anyway I like what I came to draw in the end and I’ve tried its luck by putting it up for sale, perhaps someone will like her.
I have been charcoal drawing Sunday Afternoons for a while now. Its great to keep my drawing up and to be able to spend time with my family rather than painting in the studio, and to keep my mind off world affairs. I think we’re in serious trouble. But that is another story. Here’s the charcoal drawing .
I need to decide on my subject matter, I’m thinking of drawing girly girls portraiture. They would be larger than life, can’t decide what size though. Anyway having drawn this today wondering how popular they could be. Would anyone be interested? That’s my dilemma.
Had a rest from everything today but felt like drawing a portrait late afternoon and found this young man online. I decided that it was unusual enough to try my simple theory. I am teaching portraiture for beginners to intermediate, so making sure its simplicity will work , I’m happy to see that it does.
My theory most probably is similar to other’s, there are various ways, but I think mine is simple to follow for a beginner.
A few lines as pointers to begin measuring and guide.
Well here we are again, writing a blog on another brand new website. I am dedicating this Gallery mainly to my Spiritual arts, so that my Facebook page of the name, Spiritual Arts and Humanities has a website for visitors to click on.
My last exhibition when Covid 19 struck was called Faith in the Highest and I hadn’t realized before then how much my work revolved around my faith now. I love the Lord because he first loved me and I am so thankful to Him for restoring my life after the Hell I went through in my early years. We believe that He is returning sooner than People think and could be in the next year or two or three. In any event we hope it wont be too long as we are pretty sure where the world is heading.
But brighter things are needed at this time and art is a sure way to go. I have put a number of Paintings in the Gallery and I have started teaching portraits via video, just beginner to intermediate and I will share a drawing that I did last Sunday, and a painting I did today that match a few others. I have plans to make them patriotic with the Australian Flag. I do hope you can enjoy these two, and the Gallery.
