Quite Fine Tame Caricature

Posted Jan 2022

Here I am ~ in the Studio ~ what to do ~

Once again, I felt curious about Cheap-Portraits versus Exaggerated Caricatures. (People usually prefer if I call them Tame versus Wild, but that's not really My opinion. I feel like I can either Exaggerate what I see ~ which is what Caricature actually means ~ ~ Or I can dummy-down fill-in-the-blanks to make something like a Portrait but without the time and detail needed for a Real-Portrait.)

I randomly chose this one of my Exaggerated Caricatures that was quite Enjoyed at a previous Event ~ I imagine the recipients display it in their home and they feel happy and inspired when they see it. But for my own Study, I decided to draw them again by looking Only at the reference photos. I decided to draw them Tamely. In my mind, that meant to draw it Boringly ~ just simplify the outer-shape and fill in things called eyes, nose, mouth. I did that twice. I can't imagine why anyone would want that.

Aghk ~ Getting back to myself ~ I redrew it again ~ with a Quick Exaggeration. Ooooh. So cute. Avante-guarde. Yes ~ this would look fresh and upbeat to hang in a person's home. But because I believe it should be easier to draw a Tame Caricature than a Skilled Exaggerated Caricature, it bothered me to feel like only my Exaggerated Caricatures are good.

So I got hold of myself. I chose to Approach the Tame Caricature more the Way I would approach a Real Portrait, but Much Quicker. And.... Success! I don't know if I would be able to do This tame style so well in person At a party, but I can use this Semi-Portrait Style of Caricature when drawing from Photos. If desired.

So it now feels easy for me to draw Gift Caricatures in either style.

Pencil Caricature ~ Health Care Worker

Posted Mar 2020

As an Artist, so many people pass through my life. I'm frequently quite impressed with them, but I see them for 5 minutes, and then..... gone. Sometimes I think of them. Like this Health-Care-Worker. I had drawn her back in the olden days ~ quick Party Style ~ when we were allowed to be with groups of people. I had been hired to draw the Staff AT a Home? Assisted Living Facility? I don't know. I just go there. Went there.

Now, home with these Social Distancing Rules, I got to thinking of some of the people who were taking care of others. I wonder if this woman is still Out There ~ somebody has to take care of the people who live at the facility. My pencil started moving. I redrew her Caricature in a different style. I drew her Pencil Caricature tonight. More like something I might draw as a Gift. Appreciating this woman who is probably still Out There ~ taking care of others.
