    Luca Pruneti - Composition 1.1

    Hello Everybody,

    here my first assignment. Conte pencil on paper, I did the best I could but the technique and the scans requires a huge improvement, the next time will be better I hope .

    I choose this painting mainly for the values organization, two big dark masses for the hairs and the jacket, dark halftones for the face and a light background that emphasize the figure ang give to the portrait a very solid presence. I also noted the economy used in the descrition of the various element, especially for the hair, the beard and the jacket, giving to the figure a great sense of unity.

    Here the second study. Economy, unity and the clear arrangement of tones are the qualities I liked in this portrait.

    These are beautiful studies. Your shapes are more accurate in the second one, so great work there. Keep pushing to get that full value range as the values can be closer...her eyes for example. You are on the right track. Just keep close eye on those shapes over time, and absolutely keep pushing for value accuracy.

    Great start.
