Inspiration! Paintings from Photos of Models
Recently I've had 3 2-hour photo sessions with 2 of my favorite models, Vera Wood-Wright and Waverley Tinsley. I am totally inspired, because I know both models, to get a GOOD facial likeness. This is so hard even though I have drawn faces forever.
I need to study facial anatomy. I'm experimenting with grids and a burnt sienna imprimatura with many of these.
