Palette Knife Portrait
Susan Carlin has been painting portraits with a palette knife lately, she's amazing at it. I told her she could paint with her toes, lol. She did a live broadcast yesterday and completed three palette knife portraits while we watched. I thought I'd take a stab at it and here she is, it was fun to do. Not up to Susan's standards but more good practice. We had a live model this morning at my Monday morning painting group, first time I've painted a live person. I chose a bad position to stand in, I was directly in front of her. The painting came out fair, not exactly like her and the straight on view made it look a bit like a mug shot. I figure everything I do good or bad is good practice and it was fun. This is painted in oil on a 8 X 10 canvas panel. What'd you think?
