The Draftsman and Roman Heads

The draftsman on the painting is my fellow artist Michael Ornauer, who was so kind to pose for me. It was great fun to nail down the situation as quick as possible. The Roman heads turned out too orange because I used an LED light on my easel, which produced blue light. So the whole color balance shifted. A nice effect!

Der Zeichner im Bild ist mein Kollege Michael Ornauer, der sich freundlicherweise in mein Motiv setzte. Es machte viel Spaß die Situation so schnell als möglich zu erfassen. Für das Bild mit dem Römerköpfen verwendete ich eine LED Lampe mit zu blauen Licht, welches die orange Tönung hervorrief. Somit veränderte sich die ganze Farbstimmung. Ein netter Effekt!

Hi Frank,
I have finally realized how important drawing is and focus more on it. That means that I spend more time and am more careful with the preliminary drawing in my paintings.
Thanks!
