I consider myself a landscape painter, and I choose to be outside rather than inside a studio. Having said that, there are so many faces that I would love to paint and express how I feel about them. So, I signed up for two portrait workshops.This is the first step in acquiring the necessary skills. After that, it will be practice, practice and more practice.
Today was all about drawing, composition and establishing the light and shadow masses. I'm always a little behind out of the gate, but I'm confident I'll do a good job.
