I found this guy on morguefile.com awhile ago and I had printed him out as a reference photo for my palette knife painting workshops last year. I was looking for something to paint at class last week and found him in my folder. He was calling to me. "Hoo" wants to paint me? "Yoo, You Do!"
Oil with a palette knife on cradled Blick Studio Artist Board SOLD
My sister asked if I would paint this for her boss who is leaving her position to go back to teaching this year. What a good looking family, huh? I love that the dog is looking at them instead of the camera. Too funny. Apparently they take the same family picture every year.
I painted the faces first since I knew that would be the toughest part to get right. I remembered to take a photo of it before I completed it the next day. I think it looks kind of interesting with just the five heads floating on the orange background.
My sister plans to give it to her this week. Hope she likes it!
Well-it's December! November went by way too fast and now the Christmas season is upon us. We weren't expecting it, but we did have a white Thanksgiving this year. While I am not a fan of snow, I have to say that it was really a pretty snow. Not enough to shovel and create those gray piles on the side of the road, but enough to blanket everything in white and make it look very picturesque. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
