A Resource for the Aspiring Artist…

June 18, 2015

One of my artist friends, Ray Heinz, sent me this article, The Painter’s Primer: A Survival Kit, published in LINEA, a print publication of the Art Student’s League in NYC.

Hope you find great value in it as I did.

Open Session: …Portrait: New Model

Wonderful young woman last night at Yuri’s. Only her third session as a model and first with artists; she previously worked for photographers. So poised, with a magnificent face and expressive eyes. She wore a purple gown and was seated but I was drawn to her beautiful face so my choice was to do a close up.

Used a CarbOthello 625 pastel pencil on Strathmore 400 toned paper.

Pleased with the result. Got a very good likeness.

Did a better job with the shading except under the jaw and neck.

Will get another chance to draw this young lady next week.

2 hours.

Progress not perfection.
