I started this painting from a live model last Thursday. I ran out of time, so I worked on him at home over the last couple of days, referencing photos that I took. Today it is complete.
I decided to join a 100 day project! My theme is people, or parts of people. I will share my progress here. I will be starting today and continue through April 26, 2020. I’ll spend at least 5 minutes a day, and often longer. My goal is to increase my skills in regards to drawing the human figure, it’s parts, emotions and movements.
I may not share every days effort, but instead show samples of the progress I am making.
today I decided to draw a couple of sketches of my hand. Here is one of them.
If you were planning on attending the Anton’s Green Show tomorrow, it has been postponed due to the coming storm. New date TBD.
We are expecting 5-8” of snow between 10pm tonight and 12 noon tomorrow. So stay home and stay safe!
I am happy to report that my oil painting of my cousins has been accepted into the Anton Art Center’s Show. The show will kick off with it’s opening Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 2:00 pm. The opening is open to the public with winners being announced at 3pm. The show will run through February 21, so if you can’t make it to the opening, come visit the show on the 2nd floor 10am- 5pm Tue-Sat. The Anton is located in downtown Mt Clemens.
The name of this painting is Love. It is a retirement present for my cousin.
They were delighted with the way it turned out, and so am I. They are a beautiful couple and I enjoyed painting them. I worked from several photos which I took both at the retirement party and later at my home.
