"Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen (1986)
is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. Henrik explores the dark sides of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often presented in a dream or limbo-like state, with elements of surrealism. His focus on atmospheres rather than narratives and realism leaves his painting open for many interpretations.”

8.5x11in ballpoint/Bic pen on acid free tan card stock
The stages of a ballpoint pen drawing. Like and share my artwork.
My process of drawing a William Bouguereau painting.
- Fist start with the face and hair. The face is the most important part of a portrait.
- Then move on to the large body mass ( the torso) the second most important part to perfect in the drawing
- Add skin tones and some more whites onto the fabric-
-Color in the darks and lights to shape the fabric
-Add your middle tones to the fabric
-Lastly draw the leafs, finish the stem, and draw the upper fabric.
Nude Greek painting studies. Quick little figure sketches. A lot of studying forms and thinking of how muscles move
Felissimo Colored Pencils
A subscription for color pencils. This subscription lasts 20months. For about 15dollars a month. You receive 25 pencils each month all being different shades around the same color hue. The project is to enjoy the process of obtaining all 500 colored pencils and getting them each month 25 at a time.
I saw this and am going to start my subscription soon hopefully. What is better for an artist rather than collect all shades of them and display a drawing tool as a piece of art itself with a story.
A drawing I did using black and red lipstick also skin toned eyeshadow on paper.. it was left overs from Halloween.
Drawing today on a rainy day with the pup. Blocking in color before I perfect any shades or add and subtract details. Just my general shades. I think this is over 20inches. Largest I’ve ever done Photographer caseybennettphotography
