I painted this from a drawing I did earlier - 'They're Really Jivin' on June 14, 2011- (I tried every way I could to link to the drawing, but just didn't work, for some reason). Anyway, the surface is 10 x 8" Fredrix paintboard. It's a fairly new canvas product and I love the priming. We artists are so lucky to be able to go to the store, or order online, and get exactly what we want. None of the hard work of centuries past for us - I love it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
