Portrait Jan G


Hi Matt,

For this piece my focus was not so much getting all the measurements and proportions correct but homing in on getting the big shadow shapes.  I’ve heard you say many times that you have to get the shapes right in order to get the likeness.   In my humble opinion I do feel I’ve achieved the likeness although I know my proportions aren’t spot on.  Strange how in the past I have achieved much more accurate proportions but haven’t achieved the likeness.  One thing I do seem to struggle with is width of head to length of head,  I consistently seem to get the length too short or too long.  Am obviously doing something wrong but am not sure what.  Anyways look forward to your comments.  Many thanks Jan
