Remembering the old Breck shampoo commercials with the girls who turned into paintings.... or was it the other way around? Loved those ads!

Irish Eyes

Oil on Canvas Panel
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I painted this originally in 2008. It was propped on a shelf in my studio. I picked it up this morning and decided to develop it just a little bit further. That was fun! ...looking for more now. :)

Monochromatic Study

6"x 6"
Oil on Canvas Panel
Minnesota, USA

I watched a preview for Jeff Watts' Portrait Gestures DVD on YouTube last night. These are 20 minute head studies that train an artist to capture an image quickly and intuitively. I decided to try one of his reference images.

Next video on my list to buy!
I've been asked what colours I used for this one. I used raw umber and titanium white.
