The Art of PORTRAITURE

Portraiture is the art of making portraits. To create a precise piece, it needs time, effort and to carefully study the drawing approaches in capturing the models profile. Structure and proportion of the figure, the head parts - the eyes, nose, lips, ears, hair, neck, shoulder and an insite to know the skull and the anatomy. Everything will be considered including the composition, the costume, draperies and harmony of the background. With the clean and planned sketches, I start drawing the lights and shadows in a chiaroscuro technique wether the mediums are in charcoal, watercolor or oil painting.

Drawing Light and Shadows:

Light and shadows visually define objects. Values are appplied in different shades of grays between white and black. From the light source, the object creates highlight, midtone, shadow, reflected light and cast shadow. Controlling and using values is to translate the light and shadows rendition into the surface planes of the faces achieving and creating the illusion of a third dimension.

Chiaroscuro Technique:

Italian word for light-dark, application of rendition with the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.

Chiaroscuro is also a technical term used for using contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects such as the portrait and figure drawing.

My passion and dedication in portraiture gives me the knowledge and understanding for the basic construction in creating a portrait. With a continuing practice, my precision is sharper to every challege assign for each model.
