Back to faces. I gave myself a few days to regroup and decided I was ready to dive back into the portrait painting pool.This is from a photo I got from the Internet. If you can tell who it is, then I have learned more than I thought I would in such a short time. I decided to go with a one-shot watercolor-style paint application on a white background. Out of practice, I made the color in a few areas a bit too strong and some of the edges should have been a bit softer. Nonetheless, I am quite pleased with this one. It has a looseness and vibrancy that I like.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
