8 x 10 oil study on canvas
Susan Carlin is one of my favorite Portrait Artists
and a dear blog friend. She had an online workshop this
past weekend! She is such a wonderful teacher with
so many great tips about drawing, painting, values...and
so much more. It was such a treat to see her approach
and learn from this very talented Artist!
I'm pleased with my start. Although the paint is not thick
enough and I haven't worked on the eyes, nose or mouth,
I think I managed to find the values. Susan critiques all of
the students paintings (16 of us!). We will continue to work
on them during the week and regroup for a final critique
Update: Horror of horrors! I worked it to the point that
he was unrecognizable and wiped it! I'm so disheartened.
Susan was kind enough to critique this "Phase I" image and
encouraged me to try again. Going to give it another go
although I must admit that I'm afraid this one was a fluke.
