I don’t draw from life enough anymore, so I’m making more of an effort. Here’s a graphite drawing I did of my husband last night:
And a recent commissioned watercolor portrait:
And a recent “quick portrait”:
A few commissioned portraits I’ve done since returning from my trip. Would you like to have something like this made from one of your favorite family photos?
Cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov…this was one of my $20 “quick portraits.” Portrait commissions don’t have to be of someone you know personally. I can sketch your favorite celebrity or historical figure.
Quick puppy portrait, and a painting of part of the outside architecture of The Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian, for their anniversary postcard design competition. The actual text on the view I painted says “Dedicated To Art,” and the verdigris plaque has a bust in it, but I added the 40 and gallery name for the sake of the postcard design.
I used to hate painting architecture because it was too fussy and precise, but I’ve gotten a lot more comfortable with it over the past few years.
