Heirloom & Corporate Portraiture

Demonstration of Barbro

Step 1. Sizing and placing the head.
Step 2. Continue to place and fill out the features, drawing with some raw umber, diluted slightly.
Step 3. Separate the light from shadow.

Step 4. Cover the working area with paint, approximating color and value as you place brush strokes across the surface.


Step 5. Restate the drawing, the color and values. Here, I have also begun modeling the hair.
Step 6. Add details to the features, neck and hair.
Step 7 Final. I've added enough background and scarf to balance the composition and to make the painting into a well-designed vignette.
