Beautiful realist study of a male life model’s face for Kassan’s art class in NYC. Sped up to replicate the actual two hour study you can see where Kassan begins with very crude dark block filling with his charcoal. He introduces finer detailing with the charcoal and then the pencil. The face quickly takes shape and you begin to admire just how good he really is. His final touches include the use of a white pencil for highlights and tints to bring out some of the key features. A pure class video on how to draw like a realist.

Irv Rudley is an artist who from his early childhood had a compulsion to draw faces. As a child he would draw in the empty margins of his notebooks tiny heads sketched in with pencil, pen,crayon or anything that would make a mark on paper. He would draw classmates, teachers and anyone who happened to pass his way. If someone had an interesting face, the compulsion became overwhelming, and he just had to stop whatever he was doing and a grab a likeness.
The portraits that he paints normally would take many weeks and would require a great deal of time from the sitter, he prefers to paint from photos that he takes, or ones that are supplied to him if he feels they will make a quality painting.
When he does the photography, he will take many shots with a digital camera and review them on the spot with you, to see which one is best suited for the painting. Sometimes a composite combination of differentshots, possibly substituting a different background or clothing will be the final selection. In any case, you will know, before he makes the first brush stroke, exactly what the finished painting will look like.
Many times he will make small colour sketches for later use to compare with the photography while he is painting. And occasionally he might ask for one or two live sittings when the painting is finished, just to check for any additions or corrections that you or he might see.
