I really did not like this one. It lacks life and enthusiasm. I think it needs a few more spots of warm color and maybe more contrast in the background to set the stage for some drama. This is 11" X 14" oil quick study. I however, love this model. I was told he died. I do not know if that is true or not but his face is so full of character!!! Must go. I have another quick study to do today and corrections to make for resubmission. I am learning about still life using unusual compositions and really liking it!
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
