Portrait of Alexander

8 May 2007 13 comments

Finally started painting the portrait of Alexander, my son. Thin wash of viridian green on face and hands..titanium white, raw sienna, burnt umber, cad red with lean medium on Belgian Linen.
This took about 2 hours while watching Andre Rieu on DVD......
The Flying Dutchman....great music to paint to.

    lol.....every time I start a new portrait... I learn how to speed up the process in some way...each work is a learning curve...and it's funny how you learn to never make the same mistake you probably know with your landscapes too...

    Hi Kim, WOW, this is truly amazing...I just love it. Alexander looks so great, what a handsome young man. He gets his great looks from his beautiful mum! I am just back from a trip to Berlin. I have not been on line much as my in laws are here visiting. I am very time to paint or blog. But I just dropped by tonight to see what my favourite gal was up to! You have been a busy beaver.
