graphite portrait study
Earlier this year I got to work with this beautiful model. I have lots and lots of paintings planned. :) So many that I kind of get overwhelmed at all the choices in front of me you know? But that's a good problem to have I think. Don't you?
I really enjoy drawing faces with glasses or earings because they act as sort of a built-in grid. And they're fun too.
In other news, did you know a very important holiday is coming up? That's right. It's one of my favorites. National Talk Like A Pirate Day. :) On Sunday Sept. 16. To help you land lubbers prepare for this important day I'm providing this very helpful tutorial on pirate speak:
If you have young kids you've probably heard it a time or two. :)
And Talk Like a Pirate Day just wouldn't be complete without some sort of a tribute to the best pirate ever. THE Captain Jack Sparrow:
Heh heh. Best Pirate ever. :))
See you next week everyone! Savvy love? ;)
