Groups

Sometimes I get it right early on, and sometimes it takes A LOT of tweaking before I'm happy with a portrait.

When I think my drawing may be finished I scan it into my computer and compare it with the original photo via Paintshop. If I'm not satisfied, I delete the scanned image and make a change. Then I scan it back in and compare the improved image with the photo.

When I counted all of the deleted images in my recycle bin, I learned just how OCD I am. I found that I adjusted the portrait of "Danielle" only 4 times after the preliminary image was sketched. "Ichabod" I tweaked 13 times, "Amelie" 32, and "Rachael" took a whopping 39 adjustments AND came with a 1:00 am bedtime!

When I finally deem a portrait complete I have to take it immediately for a coat of spray fixative so that I won't be tempted to tweak it again!

Jennifer Voeltz
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I majored in Fine Arts, and I have been drawing pencil portraits since 1999.

I draw whatever speaks to my heart. I believe art should be alive and evoke an emotional response. I'm most attracted to stillness and reflection, and my favorite genre is photo realism. I particularly love Dutch Baroque, Gothic cathedrals, Andrew Wyeth and Dorothea Lange.
I do sell my art, and I accept commissions.
