My drawing and painting life
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:
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.
