Studio Number: 206B
Primary Medium: Oil Painting
Does this portrait make you want to guess what the subject is thinking? To me, a simple "yes" tells me if a portrait is a success. What the sitter brings to the portrait is as essential as the brushstrokes I put on the canvas. It's my job as a portrait painter to capture the soul and spirit of the subject—to capture the past, present, and possibility that makes them unique. As an oil portraiture teacher, I enjoy the process of helping students combine their own unique style with a principled approach to painting.
