London Art College student Ian Scott has been creating pencil studies of his families hands for one of the assignments on the Drawing and Painting Diploma Course. You can see a few of them below.
Once Scott had practiced studying hands and faces in his sketchbook, he moved onto creating portraits in colour. The portrait below was painted on canvas using oils. It is stunning and a real achievement. From the beautiful soft skin tones to the textured waves in the models hair with well placed highlights to create the three dimensional form. The overall painting is superb.
We hope that the artwork Scott has created here is an inspiration to our students and readers!
