Wednesday's Effort

Tuesday was life drawing day. I did this in about 3 1/2 hours spread out on Wednesday, which is a bit faster than the previous portrait. It also looks a bit better I think.

Too bad she still looks like a man.


Block in Picture as well, so you can see how bad this stuff starts out as!

And sometimes, everything turns to shit.

End work for Thursday and Friday + one from monday. This day went completely terrible, and by the end I had zero motivation left to continue working on any of the things.

However long you think any of these took: they probably took a lot longer.

Wednesday and Thursday

Started some colour studies of artic environments. Trying to get colours right first; then go in for accuracy. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to go further than the current stage yet.

Monday's, Tuesday's and Wednesday's Work

Started this on Monday, worked on it off and off untill Wednesday afternoon. John Singer Saregnt study, this guy used to paint heads untill he put one stroke wrong; then erase the entire head and repaint it. He tried to keep his portraits as sketches - you can see it in his brush strokes as well.
