Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


Painting Clark

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.
