HOW TO Portraiture Linking Large Shapes
On dark toned paper and white paper we explore keeping the shapes linked and large. This week we eliminated the mid-values and reduced the study to black and white.
By working on a black background we can see just the highlights, the patterns and the opportunities to reduce details. The same exercise is repeated on white paper.
By training ourselves to see these “puzzle” shapes, it creates a foundation to then model the mid values with an erasure or blending stump.
