Although I'm not really finished with this painting, I just decided to go ahead and post it tonight. It's on a 12 x 16" archival canvas board. I'm going to make some changes, but I just don't know what they'll be, yet. Sometimes, if I just forget about a painting, then weeks later, I'll pass by it and think 'oh yeah, I know just what it needs'. The back burner is the place to put things when I need to figure out what should be done. We'll see if it works this time. Thanks for stopping by Hackberry Street Studio!
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.
