Now Playing: This is an Oil Portrait Study &Finished Piece
Topic: The Art
I was much appreciative for Yoshiko to model for me on this painting, it has definately been a long distance work, but now made possible by the world wide web. I must say that this work has brought a sort of revival for me in painting. I have looked back at the last few years and have felt I would have progressed more as far finally making a go of all this. I did get to the point of just wanting to quit because of the constant reminder of this creative drive I have...The two pics are with the first being an 8x10 study...and the second being the 20x24 finished piece!
The second picture below is the final version with adjustments made, which was what I saw in the reference photo that was used. Let me make a point I do not use projectors, I use a grid system for sketch transfer which is a time proven method some believe that Albrecht Durer developed..which can be seen in the how-to pages on my website and below in #3 pic!
