I don't really make a drawing a day, and I have been here stealing and commenting on the stuff you do. So I thought I would make a post showing you want I have been working on during the month of July. These are all Pastels, on Laid finish paper, or in the case of the Style of Lucien Freud it is Bristol smooth. The Freud Style has been worked on since this photo, and it needs more.
I'm looking to stylize portraits, and that's what these 2 are. If you would care to show reactions, I would appreciate it. The dog is a cute picture I saw on the internet and I thought I might gift the owner, but I've decided I will not give away my work anymore. The plant is from a photo, and I wish I had it in person because this is an example of when from life is better. I see that I need to give the inside stalks more depth (lower value). I love drawing plants.
