Drawing a pencil portrait from an old photograph

Started Dec 8, 2018 0 Replies

I have started a series of drawings for a portrait and was wondering if you can post various drawings of the features before it is formed as a complete portrait? READ MORE

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

"Gorgeous colours for the forest and the glow in the distance, with the moon reflecting overhead! The chances are  predicted as 'once in a blue moon', that maybe there is going to be a fire, the trunks already singed yet the ferns are…"

Still

"Yes, really profound and strong expression   of the fear  and how it froze the 'being' in shock.       Yet, the radiant colours at the side and deer nuzzled in her arms bestows the life which will and can…"

Maltese Falcon and how the artwork was created

"So nice to see how these works of Art are created from preliminary sketches to the final composition, so much detailed and careful drawing went into this piece, especially forming highlights and tones which is expressed so well and defined…"

Thank you for all the very thoughtful comments.  I always read then.   I often think about them for awhile before responding.  The flow on the site is a little awkward for me.  Not being able to respond to a comment in a stream.   My level of alarm, here, where I live, regarding what is going on politically, I can hardly contain.   I lose a lot of sleep over it.  I work in the medical field, w underserved people,  at an orphanage- foster care organization and in the child prison system at the epicenter of the US opioid crisis.   The kids typically have no families because of parental drug problems.   There is a crisis of factuality, disregard of expertise.  I’ve always been scientifically minded, with all the nuance.  I don’t know what you do when people think there are alternative facts.   I have two kids w serious, chronic, life threatening at times conditions which have taken everything I’ve got w our just wonderful health care here.  A life support system for the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.  I have watched people die due to lack of access to health care.  I had the flu last Jan-feb and have not recovered. Over the years, here in the US, my family had paid 1.000- 2,000!$ in medication copays per month.  When my son was a teen and went into heart failure- organ failure my insurance had a $30,000 a year out of pocket.  I just got a statement from my instance company currently and it’s about the same.  I understand why my coworkers don’t go to the doctor.  It is insane.  Right now I’m taking my son to an emergency room in another city, hoping for adequate care. (Someone else is driving).  To be continued.

Thank you for making your comments, then genesis for the artwork work was me walking in my son room and noticing the shaft of light shining on mirror as I looked at and I thought this would make good artwork. Took about two weeks on and off.

Glad that you like it.
