Portrait Study



Here are a few portraits I have drawn of some of the members on Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr. I love drawing faces but I rarely can draw them to an exact likeness of the people I draw... I have a lot to learn. I am enjoying the learning process though. I blacked out the backgrounds in these for the effect. There is a lot of talented artists out there, especially those who can draw portraits to such a likeness that it is difficult to tell the portrait from the photo - I admire that.

Well, Happy creating everyone and God bless you.

Great portraits. I wish I could draw people, but it's not one of my strong points.

Hi Kelly, these are great! I don't enjoy trying to make people look like they should, I like to make them up as I go along! Hehe! ;o) xx

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments - much appreciated.
Debbie; I'm not really taking a class as much as I've joined a group on Flickr - Julia Kay's Portrait Party. Other than that if you scroll down two posts I have posted a book I have learned a lot from and am still learning from (always learning! lol)... I purchase a lot of books on drawing portraits as I LOVE to draw faces. Hugs to you all!
