    Portrait and other studies.

    PLEASE GO TO THE LAST PAGE. Thankyou.


    Hi all. Would love your thoughts on my drawings. Any comments or impressions appreciated.

    These are all drawings on Fabriano Ingres paper over the last 6-8 months. Some are Sanguine (deep rust colour) or black Conte stick. The rest are just graphite/charcoal.Thanks for looking.

    MArine Blue-

    Very nice work! I would add that you need to punch up your darks to help
    model your forms. Check Rebbecca Kimmels work on this portion of this site.
    You'll see what I mean.
    Good Job! keep it Up!!

    Doug

    Hi Doug

    I would agree with you there. I take kind of a layered approach so sometimes I stop short of really pushing the tonal values. I have seen Kimmels work its great. Thanks for the advice.

    Thanks dude. I will try. I tend to subdue the whites to stop them popping out though. I think it is more to do with the contrast, like Doug said; pushing those darks more. I think then the lights will show up better.

    I have been meaning to do a self portrait, I just put it off because I think I would quickly tire of looking at myself for hours.

    James-
    If you are having trouble with the tonal values try using a photographers grey scale
    to help match your values. If you get the chance try going over and checking out
    rational painting http://rationalpainting.org/ some really great stuff. I would like to see
    you take a couple of your earlier posts and add the darks and show everyone the before
    and after pics.
    Again, Good job!

    Doug

    Hi Doug

    I have just registered with rationalpainting and am awaiting a response. I may revisit my earlier drawings and do what you said, I will certainly be working towards deeper values in my next drawings. Thanks for the encouragement and tips.

    James.
