Eye Glasses

Posted Mar 2020

After the thick blotchy blob I made for the Sunglasses on last night's Caricature, I decided to focus on painting Eye-Glasses tonight. Going back to Basics. No Exaggeration. No Artist's interpretation. Just what do I see in the Reference Photo that I was using. More like Portrait Painting.

Lol ~ as usual, I'm being me. I spent most of my time painting everything But the glasses.

And that's okay. Glasses don't stand on their own. They're Part of everything that's around them.

In this case, the most important thing I learned is: If I want the top of the glasses to be tipped forward, that is Not indicated so much by the lenses as by the Frame. The top of the frame stands Away from the face. But the bottom of the frame sits right on the cheeks.

I might have wanted to also try something with a transparent overlay and highlights to show the 'glass', but I got tired. If I kept continuing my Artistic explorations, I'd probably Never be able to stop.

Still trying to draw Caricatures while Also toning down dull down my exaggerations ~ using the boring constraints I was posting about yesterday. Egads ~ I don't know what I actually Did.

I wish I left the 'shirt' as just the collar. So I could have turned it into a 'bird'

Daggnabit. Now that I see it posted here, I wish I left the 'shirt' as just a collar ~ so I could have turned it into a 'bird'.
