2nd Half of Head Drawing...OILS!

The Rembrandt copy was the final assignment, this was the underpainting, in progress.

This is one of the first oil paintings. We only used a limited palatte called "Grisaille" ( 9 values from black to white and a mix of Italian pink and Raw Umber ).

Summer 08' Head Drawing!!

This is another one I really like, this one Is in Belgium as we speak! My cousins from Belgium came to the states and I felt like giving this to them as a gift. Well, I told them to choose a drawing and they chose this one.

I REALLY like this one. I think I got a real good likeness, I was also very comfortable with the charcoal at this point in the class.

Drawings from hereon are classwork, we first start with gestures then move on to just one pose all day. The main purpose is to really understand drawing construction and get a likeness of the model.

This is one of my favorite artists and portraits. This is a copy of Valentin Serov's piece of his professor, Pavel Tchistyakov.

Another Hollywood movie star. I don't remember her name. heh heh.

Figure Drawing

A Rebel without a cause. The assignment was to find a photograph of a Hollywood movie star with dramatic Chiaroscuro-like lighting. I really liked the photo and I am also a fan of James Dean.

This drawing I feel came out better. I really like the angle and position of the model.

This was done around the end of the Spring 08' semester, I like this drawing because it is when I really started to understand certain aspects of Mark Tennant's class.
