Drawing in the Soul

I had such a great time making this portrait!

This is going to be a bonus lesson for my upcoming online portrait course Drawing in the Soul, that I’m currently developing. The focus for this lesson is value and I’ve been playing with patterned papers, acrylic paint, and a little hard pastel and charcoal pencil.

When the foundation is OK – which for me is the use of the right values, of light and dark tones – then you have so much room to just play! It doesn’t have to be perfect, that’s what I’m learning each time again. It just has to have soul

There’s still a lot to do before I can open Drawing in the Soul for enrollment, but I can’t wait to get started! 🙂

  1. Hi Juna. I really love your work. 🙂
    Have you ever tried to paint on a canvas? I’m asking because I prefer working on canvas. And, second, do you use a spray to protect your paint and/or do you always frame them with glass?

    1. Hi Monette, thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, I have painted on canvases and on canvas board as well in the past, mostly for my abstract and earlier work. I am planning to try making portraits on (larger) canvases as well, but that’s still something for the future.
      When I sell my work or hang it somewhere, I do protect it with either varnish, fixative, or sometimes behind glass.

  2. I can’t wait!! Is there a ball park figure for the cost of the class??? I kind of need a heads up on that.
    Thank you!!

    1. Thanks for your comment Libbi! I can’t tell you about the cost yet, because I see that I have so much material that the course is expanding while I am developing it… As soon as I have all the video material, I will be able to set a price. I look forward to having you in the class!! 🙂
