Portrait, oil 8 X 10
I tried my hand at a portrait again. I painted this from a photo of one of my nieces. I painted it like I do my landscapes, I covered the whole canvas with thinned down paint. I sketched it on and then put color everywhere but in a wash, then I started working on details. I think it's my best yet, I wanted it to be loose and more of an impression of her. Today a portrait, tomorrow a landscape??? Never know what you'll find when you visit me do you? I love it all, lol. Have a good day! I changed out this photo after a small adjustment to the painting. I painted in a chair so it made sense why her right arm was up. Hopefully an improvement.
