I had a really odd occurrence as I’ve been working on this piece. I have broken these down into little sections I’ve worked one at a time, and in doing so, each feature of my models face is being ingrained into my head with a really intense accuracy.
So what happened was, I saw my model (after working on this painting for a few hours) and my brain reacted to his -features-! It wasn’t like I recognized him, it was like I was recognizing individually each different feature on him like “Oh I know that is Albert’s nasolabial crease!”
It was a weird feeling, it is very interesting what our brain does when we are painting. At the time I felt like I could have drawn each feature as seen here with an intimidating accuracy. But now I’ve been slubbing around a bit and lost the feeling. Still really cool experience!
Updated the site: http://khufineart.com with my newest painting and drawings in misc. sketches.
Have a wonderful weekend if I don’t post!
