Head Study 2-22

Another great session of painting last night! The model was beautiful - she reminded me of a modern day Pocahontas. I'm learning a lot about the portrait, and how a limited palette is so unifying to use. I'm working on seeing the head as a ball, and identifying values as they recede from the lightest part.


  1. Wonderful job. The light and shadow in this painting are really great. And I like the muted palette.

  2. This is wonderful. I love learning what you are learning. I never would have thought to work from the values as they recede from the lightest part in a portrait. Makes sense. I agree she looks like Pocahontas:)
