FIRST PASS

Here is the first sketch with the family members in place in the composition.  I am not totally  happy with the scale or the individual likenesses but it gives me a fair idea of how this will play out.  I am going to see how changing the sharp focus from one face to another will work.

I think this is going to be gorgeous, Myrna. Did you say this is a gift for your husband? He will be thrilled, I believe.

Myrna,

I am really liking this especially the two faces on the left.

Hi Myrna, Thank you for posting your work in progress. I find it fun seeing you develop your idea!

I really enjoy seeing your process. I'm thinking this will be as expressive as the previous work I have seen. Could you have done preliminary sketches with your iPad? Would that have made for some easy manipulation?

I just bought myself an iPad. I was wondering what drawing app do you use?

Hi Sherry, I have high hopes for this series. It is not a specific gift for my husband but we end up with most of them anyway!

Hi Vicki, Thanks for the comment. The faces will begin to morph as I move along.

Hi Peggy, I too like to see a series of paintings from artists....its like watching their brain working!

Hi Davida, Interesting question. I certainly could do sketching of this series with the iPad but at this stage of life, I am used to processing with paper and pencil or pen and it is difficult to switch over entirely. I like to hold a newspaper rather than read news on a device. It seems like there is a connection between my brain and the materials and my thinking and processing. My favorite drawing and painting app is Sketch Club. It seems the most simplified and the spot where you switch out the color or tool is always visible and easy to work with. I look forward to seeing what you do with your iPad in an artistic way!
