Shiny Materials

Posted Oct 2018

My house has piles and piles of papers all over it just now. Even much more than it usually has ~ never thought that was possible. But I needed work done on the heating system, so the plumber needs access to All the radiators at one time. Including the one that (used to be but im getting new shelves build so it wouldn't obliterate the radiator anymore) is in my Studio. Where I had folders of all the kinds of papers that I pre-prepared for gigs.

I used to do a Lot of Portraits and Alla Prima Paintings (I love Oil Paints). But many years ago, I threw out a room-full of those Paintings because I needed the space for my Party Caricatures. And now that we're tearing apart the whole space egads egads, more old Paintings are surfacing. Intriguing me.

Like this one. I remember what I was doing at that time. This was just a study of a Shiny Cup ~ because I wanted to understand how to make my Portraits Glow. Crudely done, but I like it. Especially the base of the cup and the little plate that it is on

Artist Behind the Scene

Still into Basics. I drew Pencil Portrait Hair from the photo of woman in yesterday's Excellent Caricature post.

At first, I felt like I forgot how to do Pencil Portraits. But then, my Pencil Lines started turning into Hair. It was all I could do to put down my pencil (for a while) and get back to the jobs that I have here in the Studio.
