I have been re-working some of my favourite life drawings recently for a new series of drawings made available on my online store.
Some drawings are heavily patterned:

From Acrylicsworks: Value is one of the key art elements of any two-dimensional artwork. To many artists, value represents the single most important element of a painting. The compositional structure that the tonal values create in a painting is the framework that holds everything else—color and detail—together. In a complex painting, the artist generally decides on a value key, whether in the light or dark range, or a full range of values from black to white. It is tonal value that most creates the illusion of three dimensions in an artwork, and it is also the foundation of composition. One cannot overstate the importance of value in painting and drawing.
For the AcrylicWorks 5 contest, we are looking for excellence in acrylic painting in a variety of styles and subjects. The dominant medium must be acrylic, but some minor use of other media is acceptable. If selected, you will be asked to write about your painting in relation to the theme Bold Values. This could be interpreted through your creative or technical process, materials and/or artistic inspiration.
Very nice to see Green Bouquet and Slice of Life-Louise in this selection of gorgeous acrylic paintings!

What is great about this exhibition organized by Herman Zheng is that the accent is put on the models, without them, there would be no portrait paintings.
