Studies of people and our dog Cash.Some I will paint, some are just for the sake of drawing. After doing the drawing you may discover the pose might not make as good a painting as you thought. Practice makes perfect or at least helps make a better portrait. When I make a drawing of a person, I’m searching every minute detail of the shadows and colors of their face and body. The more studies you can or want to do the better. The first drawing I do of someone is usually not the best. It’s in correcting mistakes as you do it again that help you really see all the intricacies.
