I’m back again after another painting session. I figured I’d better paint something other than a dwarf this time around. After all, I’d hate to get trapped in a niche. That being said, I started searching through the hundreds of reference photos I’ve hoarded since 2010 and found a very expressive female face to paint and I’m pleased with the way the portrait turned out. It’s an oil portrait with very loose brush stokes. I paid attention to detail, but avoided going too tight and painted it rather quickly. Again, I went over one of the abstract expressionist works given to me a couple of years ago by a friend for just that purpose.
Anyway, check out the new oil below and feel free to comment if you’d like.
30″ x 22 1/2″, oil & primer on recycled watercolor paper, 2014
I’m not adding these new portraits to my website right away, but for pricing information about the piece above,

Until next time,
