Judith B. Carducci: Painting the Portrait in Pastel: Nick DVD
A complete double disk, over three hours of demonstration, with all the technique and thinking that goes into getting it right. From a loose drawing, she places the measurements of the head and then includes the right hand. She is squinting a lot of the time and, using the charcoal stick, drops plum lines from corner of the eye to shoulder, ear to hand, pupil to mouth. She explains how the shadow areas help her to define the masses, and with each stroke Judy puts in more and more detail. She talks about glazing and how to use shadow to enhance the features of the face. Those who work in oil find her methods useful because she is such a precise colorist who employs the selective use of "melting edges.” She has purposely put in the arm and hand to show how easily and simply they can be portrayed. It is a fascinating video and one we are sure you will treasure.
