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! 🙂
