Muse and sketch in prep for painting

0

Hi, my muse (husband) and the sketch.  I appreciate the proportion hand out provided.  It definitely helped with my placement and sizing of features.  The top of head (vs. top of face) was something I figured out quickly :-)

I usually just jump right into the painting of his face, starting at the nose and working out.  I found the drawing of him a good exercise, even if it pains me not to work in the shadows to create the feature definition.Muse and sketch in prep for painting - image 1 - student projectMuse and sketch in prep for painting - image 2 - student project
