Commissioned Memorial Portrait…Man dressed in Marshal arts clothing
apx. 40inch x 50inch
Archer drawing paper cold press 2ply off the roll because I needed to get the size I wanted and it didn’t have too much tooth to it. The graphite spread nicely on it especially the background that took forever building to get the contrast without a shine. Light and contrast are an important part of my work because it creates depth…It is also “Where” you put your light that creates a three dimensional effect of realism..To be almost able to see around your image kind of depth.. To make it real and come to life… This is one of my best works. I felt his presents when I did this piece. I had a real sense of peacefulness…It flowed very easlily…there was no stuggle.
I am a realist In my artwork.. I do a lot of portraits ..so it is important that I capture that person in different ways…Not just in visual but also expression in the subjects eyes…There must be something my viewer can identify with that will draw them in…Someone they will recognize…someone they know well.
I used graphite from 2h to 9B and charcoal for really dark areas
