Portrait and Step-By-Step Demo
This is my friend Jacquelynne, whom I've painted before. Her mother commissioned a series of three portraits, this being the second one. It's oil on linen, 18x30". I had the lame-brained idea of taking photos during each sitting, partially due to some requests, but also to be able to look back in time and evaluate my own progress on the painting. Since this painting turned out ok, I added some commentary to the photos. Hope somebody can get something out of it.
Bottom picture is one I like to take just for my own records. Sorry for the bad photo. She was NOT happy wearing that dress!
