This fellow was the model for C. Michael Dudash yesterday at the Coppini Academy here in San Antonio for a demonstration he did for the monthly meeting. I snapped some photos from various angles and thought I'd try a small oil from them today. This portrait was super fun to do and makes me want to go out looking for great faces to paint. I've been waiting for other people to initiate the portrait painting process for me lately in the form of commissions. I'll enjoy leading the way some of the time with seeking out the faces and people I want to paint. The times I've done that have been very satisfying.
I'm going to go through the process of adding a PayPal button here so I'll have it fresh in my mind for the blog workshop participants this Saturday. $90. includes shipping. - May 20: painting sold at gallery, so am removing PayPal button.
