click on the link to see how the Artwork developed. This is obviously too long for Party Style. I'm glad I got it out of my system, so I will be ready to handle Prties Remotely when they come in:

3 Things I Learned

Posted Apr 2020

This time I tried to make a Caricature in my Studio as though I was at a Gig. So I would be ready to handle any Remote Gigs that I'm hoping to get. I was forcing myself to make a Portrait-Styled Caricature because that's what I've been working on lately.

As always, good thing I try stuff on my own before I take a job with it. At least 3 major things I learned from doing this.

  1. Stick to Fake Portrait if that's the Style you've decided to do.
  2. Just follow the plan if you want to handle things Party Style.
  3. an ummmm...... I forgot the 3rd thing while I was writing the first two.

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.
