Kat - Hilton Head Mug Challenge
9 x 12
I have been painting a lot for an upcoming show so not a lot to post lately. I have also been sketching a lot. I usually sketch a portrait before I paint it. This study is often rough and not finished looking. It is just a tool to help me with the painted portrait. You can see the shading is not refined. I use a #2 Ticonderoga pencil because it is easy, convenient and has an eraser attached...no looking around for my kneaded eraser which is always misplaced! When I sketch I check relationships between features and decide how it will be painted. It makes the portrait much easier to paint.
Kathleen Coy "Kat" is a fabulous artist. Her challenge is to paint 365 paintings in a year...a painting a day for a year! Check out her progress on her blog.
