Practice, Practice, Practice

loved this face - can't wait to have time to fully explore this one as a complete face..
eye in marker, acrylic washes, and pencil..

3/4 turns on the lips watercolor and pencil..


charcoal/conte pencil eye..


many eyes - charcoal with colored pastel, 
have this one along with all the others taped to the easel,
looking at me as if to say, "Get Busy!" 
(DH says it's spooky to walk in the studio now.)
Why am I doing this - when I already paint complete
pieces and commissions?  It's practice..
just like an athlete, to stay good at what you do,
one needs that practice and reviewing.  In this case,
it's right where I need to be, as I look to the future
to be doing more and better (to me) portraiture.

Doesn't look like you need much practice, Pattie, but I know what you mean. Lovely, lovely studies!!

Thanks Chris - this is a mentorship I am involved in. Each day we have a subject and a criteria for supplies - the supplies are like what I used in the old days and some techniques/combination of materials are new to me. It is a learning curve and as I step away, it is a little scarey because we MOVE ON.
