10x10 oil on panel. Love this one. I've been struggling lately with these portraits but this one flowed, in fact it was easy. -Favorite part? - that eye on the right. yum.

Speaking of his eyes - he looks kinda bad ass right? There was a time when he must have been thinking about something or he was growing tired and that was what I picked up on and painted. I normally do the eyes in one pass, once I dive into them.

Looking around the room at all his other portraits, it was like everyone picked up a different side - serene, friendly,chill. All different, all well done last night - thanks Trevor.

Such a pretty name for a very pretty wowan. She was difficult to paint and many of us wrestled with our paintings of her.

Instead of a traditional portrait sitting we had a 3 hour nude pose instead. Which was great because I haven't tackled that since college and nothing beats working on flesh tones to improve your painting skills.
Still couldn't resist banging out a portrait :)
You can see the rest of her HERE
