Day 61 - Value study of model

Had another great day at Summerset drawing a new model.  Great practice-  definitely need more of it!  I took a photo of the model and would like to try a pastel portrait of him.

Something is off in this value study, will try to adjust and correct in the pastel.  One of the great things about this group of artists is the helpful critiques they provide.  Everyone contributes and it is all in the spirit of helping.   It's sometimes easier to see something off in someone else's piece than your own.

Day 59 - Value Study of Model

Linda's neighbor graciously agreed to model for us this week.  I have been away from portrait drawing so long, that I went with a charcoal value study.  She has incredible features that I did not do justice to and hope she models again and I get a chance to try to capture her look that truly is representative of her Dutch heritage.
