Well, its back to the sketchbook before planning some paintings. I like drawing anything with a face.
My husband Tim taught me to place guide marks on drawings to help with proportions and placement of features.
For some reason, I forget that when the head is tilted, the eyes and the mouth have to be tilted in the SAME direction. Sounds so basic, but I always want to straighten out the mouth and then wonder why the drawing looks off. Guide marks remind me to stop doing that (so does Tim).
Here are a few of Tim's paintings that were done from live models:
|Mickie / oil on canvas - artist Tim Lally|
|Mountain Man / oil on canvas - artist Tim Lally|
|The Traveler / oil on canvas - artist Tim Lally|

Here are a few more beautiful "helper" postcards I received at Kat Sloma's studio with the Liberate Your Art 2018 swap.
