Quite some time ago, I painted a portrait of my nephew, Grant.
I was taking an oil painting class with one of my favorite artist/teachers, Jane Terzis.
I didn't save progression paintings from Grant's painting (at least I can't find them right now). To make it easier on myself, I painted it upside down ...
the painting was upside down, not me.
Recently, I did the same thing for much of this painting of Clark.
Here is the sequence of Clark's portrait.
Initial sketch, 7" x 5"
Sketch on canvas - remember, this was actually upside-down.
|Clark 13 x 18 (approx) Oil on canvas|
And here are both brothers together.
