Alyson Michalka

This is a portrait of the beautiful and talented Alyson Michalka from the Disney series "Phil of the Future" and the musical duo of "Aly and AJ". I choose this subject because I wanted to draw a great smile, the face at an angle, and do a study of hair texture. One person complained about a little uneveness in the skin tones so digitally altered all the tones in the skin area. Tell mr please if you like this, or if it looks a little "plastic" to you. Thank you.

I grew up on the prairie cap rock of the Texas panhandle , and started to read on my own from the Encyclopedia Britannica before I started school. My parents had little education but probably never said no to any book salesman or book club. In the sixth grade I was reading at the grade level of 13.5 at three times the average adult speed with comprehension in the top percentile. When our daughter was four I noticed that on her own she was drawing a wicker chair. I had done some drawing as a teenager but there wasn't much I could show her, so I started doing research through the inter-library loan system and borrowed books from private and public libraries across the U.S. With this I added a little of my own ideas such as the little amount of spherical trigonometry I picked up to get a handle on perspective. So here I am, and at 51 I still have never physically been in an art class or art museum.
