I watched a preview for Jeff Watts' Portrait Gestures DVD on YouTube last night. These are 20 minute head studies that train an artist to capture an image quickly and intuitively. I decided to try one of his reference images.
Next video on my list to buy!
I've been asked what colours I used for this one. I used raw umber and titanium white.
I'm an artist and daily painter (well I try to post daily) from just north of Toronto, in Canada. I paint portraits or figures mainly. I am also using this venue to explore some different ideas and techniques. Please contact me by email if you are interested in purchasing one of the paintings you see on my blog. I do accept online portrait commissions working from photographs including commissions for portrait miniatures. Please email me for further information. Thanks for visiting!
