"Erin" oil 11x14

Erin sat for the Goward House Portrait Painters today. She's a competitive swimmer and has sat for artists before.

I returned to my home medium today after several weeks of exploring other media such as pencil, pastel and acrylic - I find that working in another medium is not only challenging but the lessons learnt visit well on my home medium of oils. It was a great experience and I enjoyed crafting the portrait with almost no blending, opting for brush strokes of adjacent tone, much like Karin Jurick, John Cook or Carol Marine would have done. Super duperrrr...
