I do not consider myself a portrait artist, nor am I even that keen on drawing portaits. It is just not on my top ten list of subjects I'd like to draw. But I do love the practice. And it is great to have a live model. The challenge is certainly there to observe and interpret. So I think this is going to be a mission for me to try something different each time I go.
We are restricted to medium at the moment as we are in the gallery proper. Messy paint& water splatter is a no-no. However, once they have finished whatever it is they are working on in the lower level I understand there will be some freedoms in medium considered.
This Thursday's medium of choice was white gel pen on textured black cardstock.
BONUS FEATURE: It scared the heck out of my husband who got up late one night for a glass of water and was surprised by this portrait resting in a chair of our living room. Hee hee.
