I just finished this adorable portrait of Jack. I can’t wait to mail it out to his Mama! On to the next!
Its been tough to concentrate on anything (much less art related) with a new baby. Now that my little one has started taking longer naps, I feel like I can get something accomplished. She still naps for 30 minutes but every now and then I get an hour or two. I am hoping that this time its “an hour or two” so I can put some more layers on this little guy.
I started this watercolor about a year ago as a demo for a watercolor course that I was teaching. This is an 18″ x 24″ portrait of my god son. I hope to finish it soon so I can ship it out to his Mama. I will post the finished work when its complete. Hopefully sooner rather than later. ;)
I am going to offer a Drawing Class out of my home studio this Fall 2014, for ages 11 – 15 years. The workshop will consist of 16 classes (Wednesdays) from August 27 – December 17. We will meet from 3:30-5:30 pm. Students will explore still life and portraiture through various drawing techniques, using graphite as the medium.
It looks like I’m going to have at least 2 students (thus far) and I would like to have a group of 5-7. If you know of any kiddos in the Mobile, AL area…please share information regarding this workshop! I am going to create a page on my blog with more information. Thank you!
Below, is a quick graphite drawing (a mix of chiaroscuro, contour line and gesture) that I did for a Portrait Project, in Richmond, VA. It had to be 6″x9″ in size. It was a tiny portrait. Ha!
I am sorry that I have been missing in action for a couple of months! We welcomed our first child into the world in October and she has kept me pretty busy. I plan to use her as a model eventually, but today you will have to settle for this great video by Australian artist Joseph Zbukvic. The beginning is a little cheesy but this artist has such a beautiful style, it is worth watching. The demo begins at minute 10, so fast forward if you need to. Enjoy!
