Hello Friends:

It's been quite a while since I've made a posting! While I was away, I attended a workshop in Sacramento taught by Qiang Huang, a painter that I have admired for quite some time. I learned quite a bit from him about color and value relationships that I hope to incorporate into my paintings in the future.

This portrait was painted from a model sitting, and I approached it with lots of paint and a palette knife to start. Since the model was interested in purchasing the final product, I took it home and softened some edges with a brush, but tried to maintain a spontaneous, painterly quality.
