You allready know,
that if you slide your "mouse" or pointer on the image,
you will discover a new image hidden underneath. You can try it
Under this drawing portrait of Christophe and his pet dog, you will
find the graphite pencil portrait of Edmond. Both have Jack russel
terrier in their arms.
Christophe is extravert and Edmond more discrete, that is why he
is hidden in the background.
On Wetcanvas, my favorite artists forum, I wrote a long thread comparing
these two portraits and characters. The smiles or the glances of
the kids and her pets. It is an interesting exercice.. I will write
again here some days, but I dont want to bores you, Ô charming
I love drawing. Portraits are so elegant with pencils. It is a strong
and fine technique which does not allow any mistake. I consider
that you cannot have any "remorse" that means that I never
allow me to erase a pencil stroke. I think that anyone could see
it and it is bad for the paper. I allways draw on the same Arches
hotpressed paper 300g/m2
As I want to stay in my subject, I try to draw just dogs or kids
with their pets. I hate to draw many kids with one dog. It is impossible
to get one good photo where each child and the dog are perfect.
And if you try to take this face here and that one from another
photo, the artist knows that the perspectives or light will not
be perfect. And I hate to deliver
drawings which are not perfect to my eyes. So please, dont give
me anymore commissions for multiple kids portraits.
