Another Portrait Now Complete


Lilibeth André, Megan, Oil, 16x12

I’ve completed Megan’s portrait. I liked the final work. I like her features and coloring. I am including the full portrait and a close up so you can get  a better look.

Although I still haven’t found my favorite brushes since I unpacked from my trip to New Orleans, I had to get some replacements hoping they will turn up. The are probably under a book or something since by the time I got back to my half unpacked supplies, little helper hands had rearranged many things around them.

I like using Winsor Newton brushes for water-soluble oils. I prefer flats.

In the close-up you can better see the color and stroke. This is where you can better appreciate the painterly effect that I like in creating a likeness but not a photo-realistic image. It is more on the impressionist style. It represents what I see under the actual conditions. And painting from life has so much more work because you see so much more depth. Creating it on the canvas is the challenge.
