Portraiture Update

Another portrait commission :). This is the daughter of a friend of mine.

To answer a common question, I’ve worked from photos for all of my portraits. Painting from life would be best, if it were possible in my case.

The painting is 12″x16″, oil on cradled masonite.

Commission Painting

Before this commission, I’d never attempted anything western. But this was fun to try, especially with the desert landscape and wildflowers. Arizona is my home, after all :).

This painting was finished and sent off last week. It’s oil on canvas, 18″x24″. I’m showing here the preliminary watercolor sketch as well…….
