This is a quick charcoal sketch from a live model I did a few weeks ago.
Very powerful light. It is amazing how the orientation of light can change so drastically the look and mood of the objects. In this particular case, the expression of the face, the description of the features, and the atmosphere of the scene. That's what I think was so interesting about this exercise.
My intention was not to finish the entire head but instead focused a bit more on the features of the face, trying to model the light and shadow planes.
The main goal of this blog is to create a space where I can share on a daily basis my illustrations, sketches, and paintings as well as showing the process, ideas and concepts behind each piece.
The reason for this is to get feed back from you, the fellow artists in the field, the spectators, the critics. I would love to hear your comments.
Through this exercise I intend to challenge myself to improve the level of my art and my skills while nurturing from your inside, advice and suggestions.
Thanks for visiting and come back!
