It has been a very long time since I posted here. Lack of studio room, laziness and then illness prevented me doing any work.
But this weekend I have participated in a portrait workshop, the first day to do with the start, and the seconday for the finish. The excellent tutor was Jack Stephenson,
His method is to guide us all individually, helping with whatever is required.
A fabulous way to spend a weekend.
First a drawing and tonal block-in.
Next, adding the colour, paying attention to relationships of one against another.
Finishing takes obsevation and concentration.
