7 Day Lazy Challenge: Day 4

Today is my first day back to work from my stay cation. Getting up was difficult again, but I was still able to wake up at 5 with minimal effort to do art for 30 minutes.

Here is what I worked on today:

I was having a bit of art block, so I opened my reference book and copied that for 30 minutes. It’s a rough sketch, but I thought adding a bit of the red colored pencil would be a nice touch.

30 Portraits in Some Time Frame or Another: Portrait 5 and the Stibbert Museum

5

I started this painting yesterday and finished it this evening. This is a study of William¬†Bouguereau’s “A Dream of Spring”.

For this excercise, I decided to paint a portrait where the eyes are more open. The last two portraits I did, the subject was looking down so their eyes were obscured. Painting eyes without making them look creepy is challenging.

Now, for my travel related section. I decided to visit the Stibbert Museum which is a huge¬† collection of Medieval armor from around the world. It was awesome there was armor, swords, guns, fine art, all the works. I didn’t quite catch all the history behind everything because the tour was in Italian.
