More Value Scales

My in-laws are in town so I have to do my work at night and I won’t have time this weekend to work more than a couple hours, but as long as I get home at a decent hour I think I can pull off close to three hour sessions while they are here.

The Work

chris-beaven-charcoal-watts-course-2-061215 Finished up the Buddha head tonight, this took much longer than I expected and I was focusing hard the entire time.


chris-beaven-charcoal-watts-course-3-061215 I wanted to try what I have learned on a real still life instead of from photo. I’m going to have to do this more often to keep in practice.






I figured I would try the same in paint. This started out really well, but I lost focus about half way through.
