I have been studying art with more focus recently and I love it. I recognize the value of having goals to shoot for that makes the focus much more purposeful. Right now my focus is developing skill on the human form, specifically the female form. So I have been practicing nudes which I have some of the studies to the sketches gallery. I then wanted to also include studying fabrics and I guess the led to me doing the portrait of the girl seen here. So I know this is all contributing to a vision I have. As I study specific things that gives me a knowledge of them which means I can draw them more automatically without as much need to study when I go to make a work of art, it is all logged in my experience so I can draw much more from memory, which is the idea. So the process has been draw from reference for a while and then test my knowledge periodically to see how well I can draw those things I have been studying without any reference. This allows me to test my progress. Besides women and cloths I am practicing in prismacolor pencils as it has become one of my favorite mediums to work in. I just love the colors and the ability to blend. I know I will eventually be getting more into oil paints but for now this is my medium of choice for color illustrations. You can watch the making of this artwork on my facebook page, here's the link to the video Making of Afgan Girl.
