Portrait Practice






Hey all! Thanks for stopping by! At work, a small group of us have starting getting together at lunch to sketch (figures, animals, portraits, etc.). For sake of convenience, we take over Red Storm's boardroom and use a projector or large LCDs to view our reference on a large scale. It's not the best way to do life drawings, but it works and it's better than nothing. I've benefited much from this and decided to take this process to painting portraits. And it has been a great exercise! I find hi-res portraits on Flickr, bookmark the sites through Foxmarks (so I can easily access them at work or at home), sketch the study in my Moleskine, and then paint using my Pelikan gouache set. I can take the reference anywhere I have a computer and it allows for me to finish the paintings quite fast. They're only roughs really and I still have a lot to learn about painting and portraits, but I like the way they've turned. Here are a few examples! Thanks for visiting!

That is a great idea - I never thought of tapping Flickr as a portrait resource. These came out wonderful. The individual expression of each reads loud and clear.
