Drawing New York ARTicles

Beauty & the Brain (and capturing likeness)

I love portraits! The more I draw and paint faces the more I find each one beautiful. A little trick for capturing likeness: When I look at my model, I ask myself “What is it that makes them unique? What do I like about their look?”

Drawing Simply

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Throwing in details at the beginning can trick the eye into thinking you’re capturing your subject, but you do so at the expense of overall accuracy.

Are we living for “Likes”?

Have you ever shown someone your art and they were visibly unimpressed? Or you posted an image online and didn’t get many “likes”? It can make you second guess yourself.
