"Portrait Study 1"


This is my second try of painting human this year. When I did the "little girl in red" I was struggling with colors for the skin tone. I worked on this matter more this time. This portrait is done by copying one of Zhaoming Wu's paintings. His is the master of painting figures and portraits. If you are not familiar with his work, please check his art on the Internet. I really want to learn his ways of painting. Copying masters' work is a great way to study.

Very nice Qiang, I enjoy all your work. As well as your u-tube demo.

There is a great forum called a Stroke of Genius that you might be interested in. It is a forum for professional portrait painters and serious students. There are many generous and talented artist there, I think you would fit in well.
