White cat with black spot on its nose (WIP)

White cat with black spot on its nose (WIP)

Since this is my more “day-to-day” blog, I’m posting a work in progress (“WIP”) of this cat. I do a lot of cat portraits (aka “Cat Heads”). I don’t think there is much more to do with this one, probably a few tweaks. I used a photo from “Paint My Photo” as reference and I’ll credit the photographer as soon as the painting is completed.

Micah, a portrait from life, still unfinished

Micah, a portrait from life, still unfinished

Micah is a fellow artist, and buddy to Daniel (whose portrait can be seen in this previous post). I sometimes attend a fellow artists’ painting group, where we meet each week to paint models from life. We were always seeking new models, so I suggested that Micah (and Daniel) pose. Here is my effort for that evening. I started out painting it from life, but did some more work from photos that I had taken. I don’t know how much more work I’ll do on this painting, but hopefully it’s mostly done. It’s been waiting to be completed for about a year! It’s time to finally finish it! Interestingly, fellow artist Adam Clague (who has also been a teacher of mine—I’m a big Adam Clague fangirl!) did a wonderful portrait of Micah, which can be seen here on his website.

Some portrait sketches from life

Some portrait sketches from life

For my second post, I present a few sketches from life. The above portrait is of Pavina, a favorite model and fellow artist. This probably isn’t a very good likeness of her—she looks sullen here! During a group drawing session, we took a break from drawing the regular model (nude) to have one of the fellow artists pose for a few minutes. Daniel graciously posed and I did this little sketch of him.

Some figure drawings for my first post

Welcome to my site! To start things out, here are some figure drawings from about a year ago. I love figure drawing as I think it’s essential to keep improving your skills.
