This is a comrade from my time on Hilton Head Island - and the latest in my attempt to keep up with that wily, and productive group (you can see the whole shebang, as it progresses HERE) with a mugshot of Roxanne Duke. If you check out her blog you can see what she is submitting to the Sedona Arts Center show.
I think the more of these you do, the better you get (well, me anyway) - I hope. It certainly is freeing, the more you do, and I thank Karin Jurick for forcing me :) to try it. And I also think that the more you examine any model, the more beautiful they become to you. And the easier it is to paint them. NOT that my paintings 'beautify' my subjects at all! These mug shots are supposed to reflect their 'tough' side!
*In other news I was thrilled to hear my painting below was accepted into the the Duxbury Art Assocation's Winter Show at the Duxbury Art Museum*
