An online portfolio of original fine art, including landscape, still life, and portraiture, in watercolor oil, charcoal and oil paint. Many post include commentary about the project and the process. Many are for sale directly from the artist who painted them.
This is a charcoal study I did to work out the composition and design of a watercolor project. I am contemplating. In my resource material the pose was so simple yet dramatic, I could not resist doing a sketch of it. I changed the hair and clothing. I liked the lights and the darks caused by the light from the right. I toned down the paper a half shade to bring out the light against the front of the figure. The area behind the figure is so much dead space I felt it needed something so I added the smudging of the wind.
Wind Nymph Study in Charcoal.
Someone looking at it may say I did a bad job on the face, and they would be right, but this is just a study that I hope will lead to a bigger more satisfying project. This has no commercial value, it is just for my own amusement.
