It’s been a few months since doing any serious painting. Going back into it is making me look at everything with fresh eyes. I am identifying my weakness which there are many. My biggest weakness is my drawings skills. I can bluff my way through it but there is very little accuracy in what I draw.
I have been watching the Sky Portrait Artist of the Year on TV it made me feel so inadequate. My observation skills are poor. The programme made me think more about portraiture and how I can learn to draw and paint realistic loose portraits consistently from life and photographs. This process will also help me become more observant which will pay off when drawing most other subjects,
I’m starting with the basics currently learning about proportions, structure and the planes of the face. I’m really enjoying learning and going back to the beginning again. I will share a few of my recent drawings with you here. I am also thinking of making videos to accompany my progress.
