|From this study, the bridge of his nose needs to be widened, his eyes aren't that close together.|
His nose is more aquiline too. And a harder line needs to be added under his chin. But I had had it.
|My $50.00 eight foot runner from Overstock.com|
No more arguments with Honey over art tracks.
Last carpet installation: a runner I bought online from Overstock.com for fifty bucks, that runs between my studio and the bathroom. I am now covered. I can leave my studio shoes on if I have to go powder my nose. I was getting exhausted changing shoes every time I left my art space.The inexpensive, color coordinated, busy patterned runner will not show charcoal or sienna or dioxinine or anything else I may be wearing on the bottom of my shoes walking out of the room.
A great day for closing the door on rugs and for lunching with friends. A fair study day with Michael.
That expression of his is hard to map. I figured charcoal was the medium of the day. I did two one hour studies. The last one was closest to the truth. Tonight, I'm going to resort to the grid system. Dissatisfied with the painted version of yesterday, I went back into it, just drawing. Why did I use blue? I had a pile of it.
On my doorstep after lunch, I found the book to end all books on oil painting, said Vianna Szabo, my local hero and nationally recognized pastel painter. I can't wait to get my teeth into it. The grid system study can wait. I'd rather soak up all of Richard Schmid's knowledge on Alla Prima painting. From the price of this paperback copy, bought directly from the artist for a much lower price than Amazon, there's pure gold in these pages.
|This is Vianna Szabo's most precious book; number one on her best art book list.|
I had to have it. Her work is phenomenal. I want my work to be phenomenal too. What's
that about a cold day in hell?
