I decided to blog about my online Zoom classes with the Art League School. This is what we did in the second week of the fall term for my "Watercolor Portraits" class. We worked on a sepia value study of "Emelia Rigl," who was a New York stage actress in the 1870's. Below is the reference photo for the project.
The first order of the day was do a demo of a three-quarter female portrait drawing,
using "Emelia Rigle" as the reference. My drawing below doesn't quite look
like her, but hey, you get the idea. (There is too much information to
give you a short summary, so please watch the recording to get to the
bottom of the business!) At the bottom is the demo drawing.
