This painting is inspired by Gustav Klimt. I happen to love painting closed eyes, like the person is deep in thought and I don't do it enough. This was fun to work on and I think it has given me the confidence to start working on my online class, Painting with the Masters that I have had for some time.
I am counting this painting as a two day project since it took me two days to finish. I really love the simplicity of this painting. It is a lot different from the inspiration photo I posted on Facebook and I am glad. I can see my style evolving.
Day 12 practicing painting faces. For the next week I will be working on shading and painting. This evening was very tentative. Hope to loosen up as the week goes on. Medium used Water soluble Derwint graphitint pencils and water.
Hi, I have been busy the past couple of days with a commission to knit Hats, art projects that need to be mailed this weekend, so I did not get a chance to draw any faces. Today I drew three, it took me about 90 minutes. I am learning to take my time and really concentrate. Work on getting the eyes on an even plane, etc. This has been a real learning experience.
