Hello Friends:

Dora modelled for us at Mainstreet a year or two ago. At that time, I painted a head and shoulders portrait of her, but kept my reference photos to develop into a larger painting. I'm so glad that I did so-- her striking features along with the intense reds in the background and the brightness of her top lend themselves to an intriguing composition.

I also wanted to let my artist friends know that I'll be conducting a portrait painting demonstration this Thursday, May 13th at the Hoffman Estates Art League at 7:30pm. If you'd like to attend, contact me and I'll let you know the details. Hope to see you there!

  1. Ann, your demo the other night was great! Thanks so much for doing it. Your method looks so approachable. I can't wait to try it.
