Portrait of Soldier

This painting was very fun to do. I enjoyed the change in subject matter and the strength of the composition in the original reference photo that didn’t take much altering. The commissioner wanted his face to look more recent, as the original reference photo was taken about 10 years ago.

Drawings and Sketches

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These are some sketches and drawings that I dug out of my old notebooks. Some are recent and others are from when I was only 15 (in 2002.) These aren’t really commissioned portraits, just things I drew of friends and family, pictures out of magazines, Mom’s old book of actresses as well as some live poses from figure drawing or college classes. Enjoy!

“The Man with the Alpaca Felt Hat”

This was a voluntary portrait of a friend. The picture was taken the first day we met and he was sporting one of his wife’s hand-made alpaca hats. He looked so frail and yet his personality was so colorful, that I just had to try to capture that in this watercolor / colored pencil sketch.
