Sharon Woody is a student of mine who graciously agreed to sit for a small, 8x10 oil one-hour portrait this morning before starting to work on her own portrait project. For a fast, interrupted-several-times portrait, I'm very pleased with it. I think it might've worked better as a vignette, vs. painted up to the top and down to the bottom.
The following are some progress images of a commissioned painting I began today. I hope to work all day on it tomorrow and have it finished at the end of the day. Several things need to change, but I'm pleased with the beginning. It's a 12"x16" oil on Yes! stretched canvas. Smooth, wonderful surface.
