My photo
When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.

My First Portrait in Review


This is the very first portrait I have done.  It was back in July of 2011.  I thought I did a great job and have not looked at it since.  Well after review of all of the work I have done in the last year or so I came across it with fresh eyes.  I think it is a pretty good job but this time I saw all of what I would do differently.  Does not look exactly like the reference pic which is ok but there are things I just did not capture.  Now I have a new goal for 2013.  No Brother Jack, I am  not redoing this but will use this one as a lesson to learn from.  : )
