Party Group

Posted Dec 2008

I'll be working at a small Party today. I'll be bringing a very large paper and drawing board because I agreed to do the whole group on one piece of paper in addition to the regular 11 x 17 individual pictures. It's supposed to be less than 8 girls.

Here's a picture I drew at home to practice a large group. It's on 18x24" paper, although I'll probably be using 22x28" heavy paper if I do these regularly:

And here's a simple group that I did in my car when I arrived too early to go in to the Party. From some reference photos that I had in the car. Lol - it's on 8 1/2 x 11 computer paper! I was Ready!

Jack LaLanne

Posted Dec 2008

Jack LaLanne. He was a wonderful man. I have a quote from him here. It says: "Anything in Life is Possible If You Make It Happen."

Okay. So will I go through all these photos here? All these people I've recently seen? I can make it happen. I can review the pictures I made, see what I did, show what I did, make sense of it all..... And it's done one photo at a time. Let's look at some of them tonight:

Portraits

Posted Dec 2008

This is a Pencil-Portrait of my brother - I created it many years ago - before getting involved with Caricatures.

I used to do Portraits - primarily in Pastels, but they would be a big deal to scan. This Pencil Portrait fits on my scanner.

I used to do oil-paintings - first as layered transparencies, but then I started having the real painting fun by working 'limited pallette'.

I have been thinking for a long time about bringing my serious painting skills into my Caricature work, but I haven't gotten up to it. And once again, I'm thinking about it as I choose to go to sleep. I am taking the Action of posting this here tonight to make my thoughts a litl more solid. 2009 - will be the year that I actually take out my paint-brushes again!

Portraits. Show that Your Special People are Important. BTW, this portrait was created from a photo that Keni took of himself. See dspacer.com
