Raphael head study – Aura


Hi Matt,

I hope you had a great birthday time!

This one was supposed to be a head gesture for a watercolour study, but then I got caught up in the details and kept trying to tweak it here and there. I think it is an angles and measurements thing again, and although I see it afterwards, when they are photographed side by side, it still eludes me while drawing with the reference.

How would you approach a head gesture when the reference is so soft? Would you maybe like to do some head gestures after soft featured portraits for the Saturday youtube livestream at some point?

Thank you for your critiques and see you on Tuesday,
