The place where I usually put the models name, but I don’t know her name

All this pregnancy excitement has caused some serious slacking in the blog department. Actually it’s more like all of the Christmas projects that I have piled on my kitchen table, waiting to be taken care of. So little time.

Anyway, here is the head painting that I did in class last night.

I’m pretty pleased with how this one turned out, and I was even more pleased when Justin came to look at it and said how much better I was doing. I’m finally starting to get the hang of painting faces. I purposely didn’t include much detail because I’m trying to just deal with the basic shadow shapes right now. And interestingly enough, even without painting her eyes or ears, or other little details, it has a pretty good likeness. Funny how my teachers have been telling me that for months and I’m finally starting to see it all come together.

  • Really nice. Practice makes perfect? You are so talented. 🙂

  • This is beautiful! What do you mean about not painting her ears. Looks like she has an ear to me. Is this only a beginning ear?? Also, I expect a full blog report on the Park City show! Photos and everything!
