For those of you that would like to try a portrait. I thought a paint along thread would be a fun way for members to paint the same subject and post their progress as the painting develops.
The idea is we would paint from the source photo following the DMP(Draw-Mix-Paint) process. The purpose of painting the same images is so we can ALL
offer advice and guidance from common ground. You can paint as fast or as slow as you like - the main object is to paint.
Thought a small 8x10 B&W portrait value study would be a good way to test this concept. Would like to do more of these in the future is there is an interest from the group.
Below is a shot of the source material - I will post a link to the hi-res jpg print file along with additional info in thread. Look for the Group Paint Along - Portrait Value Study thread in the Post Your Paintings section of DMP forum.
