Portrait Drawings and Master Studies 2018-2019

Portrait sketches of random people. Some drawings are studies from master artists like Nicolai Fechin, Anders Zorn, Anthonis van Dyck, Diego Velázquez and John Singer Sargent (who happen to be my favourite portrait artists). Mostly graphite on newsprint paper, sometimes charcoal or carbothello pencils on toned paper.

Color and Value Studies 2015

That year I tried to improve my skills in digital painting by focusing on hue - value - color, lighting, shadows and hard vs. soft edges. I also studied some paintings and illustrations from masters and film stills (‘Badlands’, Carl Spitzweg, Frank Schoonover, N.C. Wyeth, Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant). Also a study on the various times of the day and resulting effects of light and color. Tools: Photoshop CC & Wacom Cintiq 22HD

Character Sketches 2013-2015

Looking at them now I’m just as thrilled as when I did them. Graphite pencil on paper, later cleaned-up and colored in Photoshop CS2, Wacom Intous A5.
