Graphite Portrait: The Glistening

Artwork by Lynda D'Souza
Title: The Glistening
Graphite on Manila Paper
So I showed this to the Prof who gave me a good critique, said Wow and that he liked the stylized rendering. He thought they would look great in a gallery as they had a unified theme and style. Asked me to keep it intuitive and I do................I very much go with my gut and intuition when drawing.

School Props

These are just some of the props students use in their still life compositions. Quite an eclectic collection.

A piece I am personally eyeing........such a beautiful skull. Yeah I got a thing for skulls !

A students left over paper pallete. My current assignment is my first in oils and I can't wait to get started. Haven't touched oils for 3 years now.

Artist Spotlight: Andrew Salgado

I am mesmerized by Andrew Salgado's work. He is Canadian and went to school with my dear friend Kiera in Regina - how cool is that ! I have always loved Impressionist work. My two loves of Portraits and Impressionism would probably result in something like this. My other favorite artist who's work is very similar is Victor Wang. Definitely drawn to the richness of paint - the actual application of paint - the blobs, the drips, the imperfections..................

There ! its done. Had a bit of fixing to do and calling it done. I could seriously go on tweaking till I've tweaked it to death. I have to force myself to let it go. Guess its the perfectionist in me !
