Old Portrait – New Portrait

Tom 09

Lilibeth André, Tom 09, oil, 8x6

I am currently working on a new portrait of Tom. We had the opportunity to paint him last year for class. Last year, I did a small a la prima of him on a 8×6 board. I t was fun to paint it and I left it fresh without reworking it. I used the drama of the shadows to represent his likeness and really enjoyed the piece.

This year, the composition included a light colored background and I like that it gives a nice variety of reflective colors, especially on the skin. I am also painting from a different perspective. In last year’s piece I was painting from a standing position. This year, I am sitting much closer to the model.

This is the work from the first sitting for Tom 10. I expect to have at least one more sitting with the model for this piece.
