Here is a 10minute graphite pencil sketch of my youngest… (She is becoming more cooperative).
Oil on 5″ x 5″ linen…
Nothing much to say… 6″x12″ oil painting.
This time I have done the portrait using Soft Vine charcoal and used fingers and paper for blending. I used a Pastel pallet knife for drawing. I have put a few intermediate steps, below, for the reader to see how my work progressed.
Below are a few intermediate steps, leading up to completion.
#1: Using Pastel knife and soft charcoal shavings/ Powder charcoal to draw. It is very easy to use kneaded eraser to make corrections.
#2: Putting in the values, as I see it, using Soft Vine Charcoal.
#3: Final result, after correcting values, fixing edges and blending (where necessary).
The Indo-Pak bride has probably the most colorful attire in the world and is adorned with embroidery and Jewelry of all kinds. This makes her a great subject for an artist,… and needless to say, it was a treat to paint this one. This is a tiny study, 7″x5″, hence the facial features are just suggested by hints of color.
Thank you for visiting. Enjoy!
I am experimenting with Videography. I will be posting videos of my paintings and drawings, in the near future. So below is a little taste of it.
