Hello dear Steemians
First of all I wanted to tell everyone and all our Artists community, please keep doing what you enjoy the most despite of all the disputes around Art and how to create an Art.
We: @stef1, @myskye and our project @art-venture will support the works that we like and nobody can influence it. We live in free world and nobody can make us to think differently and command what we should like and what not. We follow our heart, our emotions and common sense. 🙂
Despite of being on my shifts over weekend I still use my free time to continue developing my skills. I always was fascinated by those Artists who could make a drawing of sculptures, because the difficulty is they are predominantly monotone and three dimentional and the skills of Artist to reflect if in their drawings or paintings. I have never tried it before therefore, for this weekend I made my aim to try to do a portrait of sculpture.
„Chryses“ by @Stef1
I have chosen a sculpture done by famous French Rene-Michel Stoldtz sculpture, his work “Chryses”, I like the emotions that was reflected, the face features, hair and beard. It is not just copy the work but every single line needs to be studied and every value of tones needs to be considered. I decided to use different colors but stayed within the strength of value. I started with drawing with graphite pencil. The colors are done using different pastel pencils and pastel sticks.
I hope you like my work and also enjoy the process like my. I have finished it today at 6 pm, as always I sign and date it it is visible in right lower corner.
