Quick Sketch Portraits

Today was the final day of my Basic Drawing Skills fall class. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. While the students were working on their final self portrait I had some time and did these quick studies. One is a portrait of my mother sunning herself and the other is the daughter of one of the students. Since I’ve been working so much on portraits lately I’m kind of in the zone and it was a lot of fun to just jump in and do these studies. I find that one’s ability to judge proportion, and to accurately draw the features, like everything else, improves with practice.

To see the students’ self portraits take a look at the class blog.
