By George, he's got it
George from the Queanbeyan Art Society was our portrait model at this week's ASOC Portrait and Life Workgroup.
Here is an insight into my process - Three photos of the same painting of George in different states during the 40 minutes for this pose.
They are: a quick charcoal sketch; then, after rubbing off most of the charcoal, an outline in Prussian Blue gouache of my intended shape of the painting; and then finally the finished work in gouache.
This one has a bit of character - it's one the sketches from the five minute pose. Charcoal and white soft pastel on newsprint (51 cm by 74 cm).
