Apprenticeship: William Whitaker

I have had the opportunity for the past two months to apprentice with William Whitaker. I work with him three times a week where I am currently mastering drawing and will work my way up to painting. One of my favorite parts of the deal is watching Bill at work. I recently sat for a head study he painted. The accompanying image is me in paint. Check out his website,

Bargue Complete

I finished my first Bargue drawing. It took a really long time, but I learned a lot. I am starting on my second that hopefully won't take quite as long. I really enjoy drawing and am excited to begin painting exercises in preparation for Fall.
