An Artist’s Process for a Portrait Drawing

We were invited toBarakat Gallery last Saturday for LA renown contemporary artist Robert Vargas‘s new portrait works’ opening reception.  We really like how Robert’s contemporary artworks  contrast with Barakat’s ancient antique collections. It is also such an amazing learning experience by observing Robert’s creating process. As a portrait artist,  although his work is in abstract art, he spent quite some time to adjust lighting to make sure the lighting is right for his art creation process. I noticed that he did apply those lighting effects on his model’s portrait drawing, which is very fascinating,




And he did spent a little time to chat with his  model and tried to understand him.

When he started the process, he started from drawing his eyes.

Then a lot of fine tuning.

And he finished the whole creation process without any pause.



Happy Wednesday
