I stared at the dot intensely in the color swatch for 20 seconds or longer and then stared at…Continue
I am currently working on a large portrait of a family of 4 on canvas size 24 x 36" Unfortunately, I have never met the subjects....they are friends of my Uncle and he wanted me to paint a portrait of them to be a Christmas gift this year. The photo I have, I enlarged to an 8 x 10. Although it is clear, it is still hard for me to make them come "alive" per say. They are siting on a large rock next to a beach with huge boulders and rocks behind them. My problem is that the…Continue
