The Art Assignment

To begin with, this is the first time in ten years I sculpt. Likewise, sculpting is based on observation, and the concepts needed a slight turn. For example, forms turned into planes.

Further, I recalled taking me three months to complete. Indeed, it did require physical labor, for the plaster should be applied in even forms, and I ended up breaking the ears. Nevertheless, I sculpted them with a spackle gesso, and we can not even notice it, for it looks natural.

This portrait commission came out of the blue. Therefore, I had to make room in between another portrait.

The painting came out spontaneously gestural. Softening the texture was not necessary, and I compared the colors as in a still life subject.

Along with the use of space, Carla’s position is on a three-quarter view. The approach is challenging, for it has to be kept in mind measurements. This is one halfway between the front and profile pose positions.

Afterward, we see with our eyes then, we look through our minds. At first glance in real life, when objects move? Our sight compensates for what we want to see; we seek clues and build a conclusion.

Also, I thank Lisie for referring me to portrait Erik’s dog. I just finished it last week and sent it to Florida.
Dogs only last from ten to thirteen years. Followed by the cat, it is the second most popular pet owned by humans.
Sixty percent of U.S. households, or about eighty-five million families, own a pet in the USA. I’m very sure we all have the experience to share with our best friend’s pet.
