Portrait 1, 11x14

This model had such a strong, interesting face. This is my first real person portrait, and I was completely terrified the entire 3 hours that I had to work on it. I don't know this model's name, but I think we would be friends. SHE was pleased with this work, which was the ultimate compliment. I have attempted several portraits since this one, all with disastrous results. How can this happen?

  1. Sharon, it can happen, believe me, but keep doing this because you obviously have a great talent. I REALLY like your work and am so happy to have found your blog, too. We definitely share some leanings in our artwork I think, and I'm happy to see a kindred spirit! I'm adding you to my favorite blogs list. Happy painting!
