Here is the final version of my dad and my eldest son. It's approximately 9 in x 11 in, graphite on bristol board coated with acyrlic paint. It marks the end of my Ingres study for April.
Things I learned from Ingres:
- Subtle lines make a big impact
- Hard pencils can go very dark on a coated paper
- You can't choose how you will be remembered
- Not accepting what other people appreciate about your art can make you appear cranky and ungrateful.
- You can stop working on something if it isn't going well, but you might learn something if you persevere.
Looks like the FineLine Artists Group Project for May is James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
