Christmas gift for Deebs
This is one I drafted out just after graduating and have only just taken another look at it. I'm more pleased with the way this is going compared with the one in the previous post. I seems fresher and the composition makes more sense I think.
Painting inspired by 4 separate photographs of people in a lift. It's been a while since I last painted so I've yet to find a focus in the painting, my plan is to add in detail and darken the background. I'm hoping to get more of a sense of claustrophobia and the awkwardness of being in a lift with strangers.
I'm finding the lighting difficult to get right as each person was photographed separately but my aim is to tie everything together once some more detail is added.
First portrait in a while, found it hard using pencil so switched to charcoal which made getting an overall figure a lot easier, especially as my drawing skills aren't very accurate at the moment. Switched between drawing from life and drawing from a reference photo.
