one woman's view into a world of creativity

Portrait Progress

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I’m taking Drawing the Portrait as one of my winter term classes.  I have the class four hours a day, four days a week, for four weeks. 😛  That’s a lot of fours.  But numbers aside, I’m really enjoying the class, though the long hours can be trying sometimes.  I’m seeing a lot of progress in my work, but I still need to work a lot on proportions and achieving a likeness.  This past week we focused on the skull, started drawing from a model, worked in charcoal and conte crayon, drew using tonal values, and ended with ink wash and gouache.  I thought I’d share some of my pieces, both practice and more finished studies.
