Portraits of a Chinese man

These are five rendentions of the same man, the vantage of each artist moving from his right to his left. Click any to enlarge.






Class only lasts about two hours. I'm pretty amazed at what we can accomplish. This man was so sweet, almost 70 and sitting there with his iPod and listening to Tchaikovsky.

For this being my fourth pastel portrait, I am happy with the outcome and can see significant progress.

That's pretty cool to put up each artist's rendition. It really emphasizes how each person sees one thing so differently.

I also love it that you let us see what other artist's did from their vantage point. Very nice work.

Wow - you make pastels look so easy. Maybe I never gave them a fair chance...

I can picture him sitting there with his ipod... very cool.
