Watercolor with white gouache in a heavy weight oatmeal paper sketchbook. 2002

Gorgeous study, Nathan. Nice opposition of warm and cool light sources. Also love the soft wet-into-wet lay-in stages before you went to opaques.

This is breathtaking!

Nathan, in your portrait online class, in Week 2 you do a structural drawing from photograph and then check your work with a lay-over. This is amazing to check one's work! Could you please explain how this is done? Would I need a scanner or projector? Thank you Nathan

Thanks James!

And Ben glad you're taking the portrait class!

Yes, I scan in the drawing and bring it in as a photoshop layer over the photo reference. In the layers tool box I change the setting from normal to multiply to get a transparent line only image.

I'm shocked at how many of my students toss bad drawings and move on. I have always and without exception corrected every one of them to make sure the same mistake doesn't happen next time.

Lovely piece, Nathan.

What is the brand of the paper/sketchbook you use? I am looking for a sketchbook with heavy weight, oatmeal colored paper.
