Portraits with the SimmTrace
I have not been blogging, I have been working...some work on artistic pursuits. I am finding the greatest thing about the SimmTrace is doing portraits. I have been studying up on chiaroscuro y sfumato techniques. This is Italian for light, dark and smoke. The examples I have included with this blog are not charcoal or sanguine sticks as they should be, but rather Crayola crayon and standard #2 pencil like kids use in school. I have to tell you, they look very like the my beautiful redheaded daughter, the subject of these drawings.
And yes, Crayola crayons are real art supplies!
