“Andrea”

I have really been enjoying my figure drawing class.
Here is my first complete piece.

Today I will be hanging my first pieces to go in a gallery – Ikebana and Ikebana #2

They will be in the Petite Galleria in San Jose’s Japantown. Needless to say, I am over the moon. If you are in the area please stop by to check out their collection.

Sketching and more about my jaw

I’m having less pain from my jaw surgery every day, which is great! What does suck is the feeling of the nerves in my chin growing back. Sometimes it feels like I’m drooling, other times it feels like bugs crawling or pinching under my skin. I’m in it for the long haul though – feeling should come back after 3-4 months.

I’m finally pleased with my Paintings section of my website – they’re currently all available.

I’ve added my second sketch for Reddit Gets Drawn to this post. Quick studies can be very helpful when trying to understand facial structure, and often times it pays off to think about the relationship of lines. Proko has some great videos on how to sketch faces and heads.
