Drawings Inspired by Life




One of my former students, portrait artist Dorian Vallejo, has come out with a beautiful book of his drawings. I just thought some of you might be interested. Dorian's work ranges from very formal oil portraits to very etherial figure drawings. A very talented guy indeed!

Here is info on the book: http://drawingsfromlife.com/Pages/Book/Book_Page.html

Here is Dorian's portrait website:
http://doriansportraits.com/html_pag...Paintings.html

The first image is an oil portrait. The next two are from the drawing book.

Thanks Julie,

Dorian has the courage to pursue all aspects of life drawing instead of just sticking to one narrow path. It's inspirational stuff.

Marvin,
Already a fan of Dorian's (and friend on facebook). I am so happy to see you putting in a plug for him, his work is beautiful.
