This was an interesting drawing– i think I need to find a way to sit back and notice what works in the early sketches so I don’t overwork the final image

Portrait Project One - Following an inspiration

Portrait Project One – Following an inspiration

In my ongoing attempt to overcome my discomfort with portraiture, I decided to do the part I really love… painting faces from imagination.

Colored Pencil Doodles

1/13/21


Joined up with my drink and draw group online. Didn’t have any idea what to do, but I’ve been missing using colored pencils on mid-tone paper, so I doodles a few things. Mid tone paper is really awesome for colored pencil. The colors pop out with so much vibrancy.
