  • Re: Patience

    Folks

    I think the key to the patient and rigorous application of the Carder technique is the nurture of a special form of mindfulness.  You do all the studio setup, drawing, mixing etc and there are three things left.
    Your focused view of an abstract shape and a loaded brush. Time and the rest of the world fades to black.
    The brush stroke, the flow of the line and the spectral lustre encloses the minute, the hour and the day.

    Rustoleum is the primer used on car bodies from bare metal to ensue a tight bond and a smooth long lasting finish,with enough tooth to hold the oil paint on Dibond aluminium.

    A high density foam roller with RustOleum makes priming and toning lightly sanded aluminium a breeze.

    I think Kingston will return. He likes the praise and gets more of that here than elsewhere.
    He goads some folks with his sharp tongue and gets upset when he gets it paid back.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Quite a wonderful portrait and top result for your first attempt.

    The proportions are a bit off. Hairline to brow line should equal brow line to lowest nose, this distance is also from lowest nose to lowest chin. The forehead seems overly large and the mouth and chin overly small. These proportions are best set out with your proportional divider at the drawing stage. The eyes seem too far apart. One eye width between is standard.

    Yes, everyone is different, check by measuring your photograph or direct from the model.

    Great work.

    I’m always amazed when a bunch of joined up abstractions creates a reality.
