when I am finished paintings.

"Portrait Challenge Progress"

Focus, focus, focus

It's taking all my concentration to attempt

to move faster while painting my portraits
in this paint challenge.
Yep!  it's really difficult seeing as how I don't seem to do anything
quick these days.
Every time I do a session I am able to force myself 
to relax my brush strokes just a bit.
I remember Fritz Van Eden mentioned that
in order to get fast you had to
practice, practice, practice.
 

So I'm a practicing.

 
Please note that these painting are not completed yet.
 

Enjoy!!!!






 

Thanks for following.

A Very Challenging project.

I have started!

 
I have received about 14 photos to work from and thank you
so much to everyone who has participated
in my little portrait challenge.
 
Small progress so far and I am trying really hard
to accept the challenge of
painting a portrait rapidly.
An acrylic 5" x 7" canvas board

 

Yikes!  What was I thinking.

 
It is definitely a challenge
A very good challenge.
I'll post as I go.
 
 

Enjoy!

Send Me Your Favorite Picture

Intense Portrait Study

I am so excited to be starting this new project.
I've been wanting to do this for a very long time and finally I have begun.
 
I'm on an art mission and I need your help.
 I am wishing to expand my portrait art technique and ability.
 What I would like to do is change my brush technique and quicken the amount of time it takes me to do a portrait and to loosen up my paint strokes so that I can do a nice likeness and get it done in a speedy fashion.
 
I have received nine photos so for to work from.

 

But I Need More!!!

 

I need about 10 more photos please.   Come on!

 

I know you want to.

 
 Stir up the dust and find those photos please.  I'm on an art mission and I need your help.

"A Wonderful Summer - 2013"

It's been another wonderful year at the

Sebastian River Art Club

in

Sebastian, Florida

 

Often times, in the summer, at the Sebastian River Art Club
Grandchildren get to come with their MeMaws and Na Na's and Paw Paw's.
 
There were three children in particular that ran and played the days away while myself and other
art club members painted their days away.  I couldn't help but notice the
individuality of each one of them.  Sparkly, color wise, and so smart with their playtime.
Yes, I just had to paint them.  They were so much fun to do and
all my paintings seem to lead to more commissioned work.
Thank you kids for the wonderful summer.


 

Enjoy!
