In this Wake and Draw Ep 14 I finally got time in to make a video! I started drawing this one early morning and finished it after work late at night.

It’s more like a wake and draw…go to work… come home…draw again before bed. We do what we can with the resources we have.wake and draw ep 14

Drawing when there is time and making time to draw… always the challenge.

I ran into a few problems with the earrings but Tuff Stuff got me out of a bind.


In the video I show you guys a very moving portrait painting by Ben M. Young. He painted this from life as a 3 hour demo in class!IMG_6556

Notice the cool and warm light he set on the model’s right side. The play between the two lights is amazing.

You can see Ben’s other works on his site at…
