This oil pastel is painted on 12 x 9" Guerilla carton board. Wonderful stuff. I just ordered some Caran d'Ache oil pastels because I think they will work really well on this surface. I was going to do something with the background, but didn't have time, and didn't really get much of a finish on the model, either, but maybe next time. Thanks for looking!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
Yippee! One of my drawings received an Honorable Mention - Tony Eubanks was the judge. I am super excited that two of my drawings have been selected to be in the juried exhibition - Art At The OPOMAC 2015 - in Graham, Texas!
Art Journey, Portraits and Figures, an F&W Media book, includes one of my ink portraits. I am so pleased and humbled. You have to see all the great work in this book!
Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing, by F&W Media, includes TWO of my drawings - I am thrilled that my work is there!
