Saw this one online the other day and decided to try the steps.. As usual I paint very quick and it’s shows. I normally draw what I see and never transfer or copy, I am also not using a grid, just don’t believe in extra work. I can see few mistakes here but it is only a practice and I know the next one will be better. I often look at the object at the beginning when I start drawing or painting and then I use my memory with many of my subjects.. That is the way I work and normally in most subjects I do it works.. I think I need to continue looking, otherwise I would never get the same person who stand in front of me.. I might get the liking but not sure on the exact… OK I’ll have to work on it at least with portraits. Mean time I consult a cosmetic surgeon what to do with her mouth.. What did you say… her eyes too.. ha ha
A friend asked me to draw his face from memory while we chat on facebook, so I sketched quickly looking at his picture and sent it to him..
He said it looks like him… I thought it also did..
The next day, I have drawn another ‘Starer’ and although I could see some features something did not seems OK.. So it is back to practicing…
I saw this sad grey looking lady… she also stare at me, so I tried to draw her.
