Bits and Pieces

So I've decided to post my previous classes worth of work over the course of a few days because the new semester is going to start. Some are better than others and I feel these two fall in the not so great category. I had sketched the blond previously and while very sweet, she twitched a lot. (I hope she never reads this, but facially she moved quite a bit.) She was week #3 and I have her facial features down so much better than week #2. (I've already posted week #1 in black and white)

This brunette was week #2 and Mark was rushing me to put color down. I really am a person who wants to get my drawing element correct first beforehand and he did finally understand that quality in me. I really, really did enjoy his class but I'm torn as I want to experience some of the other teachers they have there (before they lose them to their own studios.)

If anybody wants to buy these, give me a shout. They won't be expensive.


  1. They both look good Karen! I took a few portrait classes (intense) and now I have a lot of painting of strangers - my kids tell me my paintings are creepy.

  2. Great skin tones and expressions! I would not know where to even start! I would say go at your own pace and don't be rushed, we had a national portrait competition recently that was televised and the winner spent a good 80% of his time getting the drawing perfected.
