Day 2 Year of Daily Art

Painting of a young man #2

Painting of a young man #2

Day 2. I did another painting of a young man. I have been doing faces of women over the past few weeks. I think it was time for some men.

This time I used that same technique as I used on another piece a few weeks ago: the painting of the woman with the closed eyes. I owe this technique to Juna Bagioni, who shares how she paints wonderful paintings on her website and in an online lesson in the Art Journal Summer School 2015, an online class.

Junas wonderful imaginary faces are based on a good understanding of the features of the human face. I thought it was interesting to work on a man’s face from a photo reference. I can tell you it was a bit of a challenge. What the challenge consists of, I will talk about later. I just have to keep it short an simple now, partly because I had a sleepless night last night.

Edit September 25:

  • Soon this painting will be in my Etsy shop. Be on the lookout for it.
  • I’ve entered two challenges on other sites, 29 faces and 30 paintingsin30days. Even if I don’t paint every day, it’s nice many people can get inspired and see the progress in my Year of Daily Creating. If you came through a link I put there : you’re very welcome here to look around, read about my year. šŸ™‚


Juna Biagioni makes beautiful drawings and paintings; her website is called Juna Biagioni Art. Juna is one of the teachers in Art Journal Summer School 2015, hosted by Marieke Blokland of Bloknote Academy.
