I spend 2 weeks with my parents over the holidays. It was good to see them for such a long time.
When I visited Freiburg I went to the Augustiner Museum and saw, for the first time, paintings by Franz Xaver Winterhalter. From one of them I did a study, it took 3,5 h. There was a person, who gave us instructions and she helped me in the beginning stages of the drawing to lay out the grid and get the proportions right. Usually I don't spend enough time in those critical measurements and jump right to the values. So this time, forcing me to get it right in the beginning was challanging but I learned a lot.
A random value exercise, trying to get a good read on each value group.
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
