Hey Raileyh such beautiful paintings and I really find your drawings interesting. Are you able to explain a bit more about your life drawing process please. I was looking at the 3rd page where you have written down '2 min - Set up, head, midline, parallel'.
Hope, I'm stealing everything here and keeping it on my computer for ever + 7!! I see the Hope R jaw line ( subtle, lost-edge).. Your voice is in my head when I over do those edges ( among many things I have learned from you!).. Great stuff Sir!
Any chance you could do a little demo showing how you do heads/faces; i know there are some sketchy ones to learn from, but someone speaking and explaining along with the drawing always goes a long way. Good work
Just read through your lecture again and its wonderful. Do you think you will be able to get the images back as I am desperate to check them out. Especially "Line 1 Line 2" .. also if you do you should post it seperate on Art Discussion sub forum so it gets more views!
Great lesson above. I also liked the grayed portrait paintings. They show what a limited palette can do. the combo of light-dark abstractions along with the form space abstractions are great I've been playing around with that too. I abstract differently but it is evident we are approaching the quick studies the same. I've been interested in how the shoulder joint floats about going forwards, backwards and up and down independent of the rib cage it stretches the breast muscles along the chest or compresses if curling forward. It can be very expressive don't you think? Only the head-neck position is more articulated with even more expression.
