JMW Turner, 16 years his senior, offered a much more frenzied scene, “The Shipwreck”, in , above, and, living by the sea, couldn’t let the subject go. IT ISN’T as famous a put-down as John Ruskin’s furious dismissal of Whistler as a man capable of flinging a pot of paint in the public’s face and asking guineas for the privilege, but it.
In the sketch book I started to use water color, painting portraits of my nephew Ethan. Focusing on the expression of his face capturing his personality. Painting from photographs of significant events I hope to create ideas based on memories and time.
These portraits being personal to me as an artist, I have developed my drawing skills and portraiture. The viewer looks through creating many drawn portraits of people within my family from photographs.
Drawings of my two sisters with their boyfriends Tom and Ricky. Trying to develop my drawing further I read books on portraiture to create a more life-like style within my drawings. In the sketch book my drawings have developed using softer lines on the face structure, creating more life-like features to my portraits.
Gathering an understanding of proportion within group portraiture and singular portraits. Drawings of my Mums family, my Nan Joyce and my aunt Eve. My aunt Janet, my Granddad and my step Granddad Bill who have all passed away, their memories living on forever.
To separate the sketch book of the two families I drew a self-portrait of my mum and my dad on either side. Exploring into my family history I often get asked where my surname comes from.
Later on having 3 children with him Patricia, Desmond and Gordon she later on divorced leaving her 3 children behind in Jamaica.
Coming into Britain at the age of 25 on the banana boat that ships the bananas from Jamaica to Britain. She later on met my step granddad Vincent Nkwo a Nigerian man who she then went on to marry. My dad not knowing who his real father is as he was adopted by Vincent, carrying on the surname, Nkwo.
Also drawing my uncle Michael, my aunt keryan with my 3 cousins Monica, Mikey and Sian. Developing my drawing I have improved noticing skin tones and ways to draw face structures more effectively.
I have also learnt about subtle marks and proportions to the image. Doing portraits of my entire family in my sketch book I shift my focus to painting portraits on canvas.
Creating a self-portrait using acrylic paint and crushed chalk to create texture.
As an experiment I used my hands to paint this portrait. Creating texture to each surface I painted a smooth surface for my skin giving a textured material feel to my dressing gown.
Adding details to my face using a paint brush. I then created a family portrait of my mum, my dad, my two sisters Nicola and Kerry and my baby nephew Ethan. This portrait being my first portrait that was a group image.
To improve this image I would get rid of strong lines to make it more realistic and to even out the skin colors. I then painted separate portraits of my mum and dad facing each other painted from the same photograph I painted it onto separate canvases.
I then created a larger portrait of me with my two sisters Nicola and Kerry and my Baby Nephew Ethan. This is my favorite group image as the colors are very bright, gaining a better understanding of proportion with this image.
