Personal Notes

It took me almost 14 hours to draw this sketch. There were times that I wonder can it be correct? What does it look like? Is it still the subject?

There were a lot of things that went through my mind while I was busy drawing this sketch.

I am busy watching a series about Versace and such a wonderful designer, he lived the dream. May he live forever and in heavenly peace.

Personal Notes

In my opinion, the hairline is not correct, the eyes are too big the lower lip is too big and the neck is too thin.

In some places, the lines are too dark but overall I think it is working but not perfect.


Study 12 – Three-Quarter Face Impressionistic

Title: Study 12 – Three-Quarter Face Impressionistic

Style: Impressionistic
Art Subject: Portrait, Imaginary
Place of Origin: Pretoria, South Africa


Personal Notes

I used a reference solely to get an idea of what I try to do. I draw a lot of lines to make it impressionistic. I like that style. I also enjoy working with the shadows. The sketch is a bit off-balance from the paper and is not a hundred percent in the middle. I used the Reilly method to do this sketch and that is mainly the reason why it is off-centered.

I worked about 4 to 5 hours on this sketch but I learned a lot.
