This is my first attempt at blogging, so please forgive all the inevitable mistakes. Things will be rectified in time.
My first project to post here is the beginnings of a painting in progress. This will be a portrait of kevin. I have painted a colour study outside in a biting wind and taken photos. I have now made a canvas up to size and am about to start drawing. I use a cane with charcoal on the end to that I can get the basics of the drawing in from a distance.
Having put in the basics with charcoal I begin to start blocking in the main shapes.
Adding a little more detail to the background.
Eventually people are beginning to take shape.
