Day 1675 – Matthew!!!

Matthew 16×22” Fluid cp 140# WIP

Monday at life modeling I heard he was coming to the Atlanta Artist Center for portrait painting on Tuesday and that he was fantastic so I decided to stay on in Hot Lanna one more day.

Loved him. He never moved!! The man is granite!!!

Hmm I think that mustache needs to go. Too dark. It’s done with ultramarine blue. Oopsey. What happens when u don’t stand back enough.

The sketch. I was toying with putting the chair in.

25 minutes.

Still needs his cushion.

What a hideous mustache effect. Eeekk. Maybe a bit more shadow on his left arm. And that pillow. Crop it 83 hmm shadow on the left side and bottom. And somewhere I lost his left nostril. Hmm that’s easy to fix. And a bit more curve to his lower left cheek.

Have lightened it a bit. Will work on it some more tomorrow. Shoot me someone.

Drawn on 140 lb cp Flyid paper. The one with a Charles Reid painting as the cover photo. Drawn with a .7mm 2B lead pencil.
