Pretty and warm sketches Eighty. I like the guy the most... so much character in his face. I too am sketching a lot, but directly on canvas and it gets covered with the paint nothing more of the pen to see...

Very good sketches, Eighty. I like the first and third here..maybe because i like women, they have more character and mystery in their faces... men.... oh... they are usually hiding behind their beards...hahahaha...Isn't i t relaxing to work just with a pencil i too do enjoy it a lot. But as soon as i finish the sketch usually i want to see it colored....

01-17-2011, 10:37 PM
Dear ATPlus, I commented it technically, but I cannot recognise him as yet, unless he's Modigliani we talked about some time ago. Other famous enough Italian painters of the XX century would be too many for my menory to recognize at such an apparently young age.

Your technique seems looser and fresher. You use different pencil tones and, above all, You follow much better the most appropriate directions with Your signs and You probably go on on any part almost simultaneously so that You actually got a dramatic improvement.

wonderul studies. you are mastering the drawing techniques for sure. What a great student. Eventually you will be able to sketch the human face at will quite handily I would imagine. What a great idea to study the masters. You have shown an amazing improvement since you first started sketching. Now they are just amazing. You even consider the darks and lights now. Watching your progress in awe. These look like actual drawings on paper.
very impressive work Eighty. Did you at one time draw on paper as well? I mean did you at one time sketch in natural medium? You certainly are becoming masterful at sketching in the digital form.

01-21-2011, 12:50 PM
Thanks Gaz I think its the bus drawing as you don't have time to think
so you bash on it makes you faster so u tend block in then sort as u go along ok but then working with John he made me use the hatching wich i hadn't bothered with as was more a line bloke thats has
been a great help but later I'll be with holbein I think He's more a line man ok

D Akey
01-27-2011, 03:42 AM
Nice stuff. Looks like you have looked at a lot of artists from that period. Very cool exploration. I think it's a matter of what one is trying to accomplish, whether it is to be a drawing as an end product, with some color, like some Lautrec work, or something that is merely note taking, as a step in the path to a grand painting. A lot of that determines and makes sense of drawing styles for me. Drawings have become something of a framable end product because they can reveal much about the thinking of an artist, or are flat out great in their own right as an end product. That has been my observation anyway. And I love drawings.

I see you mentioned Sergeant as the topic heading, but it looks like you are looking at (or have looked at) many different artists. . . or maybe Sergeant went through phases and styles of his own. I think what you are getting in some, especially the boy last page was the play of light against dark, largely successful and revealing as a study because of your actually putting in the full range of tones. It tells/solves far more and acts as a very good road map for painting when it's worked out to that degree. It will serve you more fully if you convert it to a painting.

Very cool. :)

Hello D'askey :D the last time I saw you, you were playing the flute in the artrage band the look you were giveing to the bloke next to you I thought
crikey there's going to be a punchup and everyone was placing bets what happened as I had to go some gezzer wanted a moon river and as told him
Sir I'll do you a moon river but I'm sorry not in a tiffany glass as too many
have been stolen will that be alright SIR He was speechless :cool::cool:
as for the Sargents Ive only 4 more to do of the bunch there's only 3 that I'm
not too happy with the 1st one and the viscount (army officer) and the young
boy as i made him look too pretty there is one other I left for Caesar to look
at it was unfinished but he made no comment its the young Italien youth so it is as is ok as yet not happy with paint then pehaps its just me tried smashing it on IPad thanks for your comments most interesting:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D----E/S

Dear ATPlus, quite interesting people attend Your portrait atelier recently, maybe just a little retro ...:D:D:D
I noticed You're a quite good and careful host for them and You keep them comfortable while posing with Your wit.
I also noticed that Ann Boleyn is strangely not susceptible at all about offering her head for You to portray her, so I concluded she must have lost her head for You during her portrait drawing session. :D:D:D

I think that Holbein the Young and EightyPlus the Old are giving here lectures on XVI century English history. :D:D:D Which other country's history next? Very interesting and nice indeed.
Quite seriously it would be really interesting to let art narrate history of Europe and European countries with few words commenting them, since in no other place of the world so many powerful masterpieces can talk of history both in terms of great personalities as well as humble people all over the centuries.
I've been reviewing many classical portraits recently and I was stunned to see so many persons who look so much alike us (and specific persons living today) with somehow different features still typical of any place in the aboriginal population, but also so much in common as part of a unique cultural base of our continent which, it its highest forms, didn't consider any national boundary ...

You are indoubtedly working to illustrate an English History book, dear mate! :D:D
Curiously You resumed also, by drawing two christian martyr saints such as Thomas Moore and John Bishop, an ancient dispute between theocratic and political powers and supremacy.
In this case in England the political power enslaved of the religious and spiritual one and unduly decided on clergy hyerarchy to have the political one able to keep the control and drive of consciences allowing chiefs to abuse of their power so as to behave without any constraint.
This is happening today in China where the government want to decide on who is an approved catholic or not (thus an outlaw) and now elects catholic bishops even without Pope's approval. No surprise after their behaviour in Tibet with buddhists, but meddling of mundane power also into religious matter, thus hinder real religious freedom and also democrachy and minorities rights, is a serious human rights violation, while the other side of the medal is a much similar and dual problem with islamic or indu fanatism which would like to rule also politically and intolerantly set the public rules.

Greet Rubens for me then, in Italian if You wish, since he came learning and staying here for quite a long time and he painted many stunning portraits of Genoan nobles. Those people were then among the richest and most exclusive aristocrats in the world since Genoa, like Venice, was a magnificent Sea Republic controlling West Mediterranean, although its domain lasted less historically because defeated by Venice itself and then both, progressively, by America discovery and African circumnavigations which changed significantly the trading routes and the colonial places ...

Actually he's far more handsome than Depardieu ... :D
Maybe I forced You to use the dictionary sometimes, but I'm now forced to search in all the web corners also among secondary personalities of British history to look for so many unknown guys outside Albion's insular boundaries.
I like this series though and I would appreciate if You have also some information or a link explaining who they were ... :p

Hi I've lost Thomas Boleyn had nearly finished when recon I must have

hit those little things on the side as suddenly I couldn't use the tools

it was like as if I had a glass plate infront of the drawing thought it

must be those layers you talk about so went in to layers and lost the

drawing bloody hell so I'll have to leave him to the Last OK

Hail O Caesar you've been on holiday again where did you go this time :eek: at least living in the Med basin you don't have to look for a hot climate

Sauna? In ancient age we used to call them termae .... :p
By the way, it would be a great idea for you to re-draw these personalities dressed with a towel (or rather undressed) for a sauna. :D

Hi Coops don't blame me its that Sargent and Holbein their ganging up on me be glad to get with Rubens but looking at his stuff it wont be a joyride as his is not portrait work which is easy in comparision reading the file on him it apearrs he was'nt concerned about the drawing what a shame as he could have been the best

Hail O Caesar so thats where we got thermal from Bloody Romans
no joking apart its a pity they didn't stay Longer we would have had some Beautiful city's and good roads and don't forget the Termae Yeah
