I haven’t posted a painting class update for a while because I’ve been working on my portrait of Josh for weeks. I finished it on Monday, and here it is.
I am so pleased with it. I’m especially proud of the ears and eyes on this one, compared to my self-portrait I think they are much improved.
I think it is interesting too, how different the experience was painting myself and painting someone else. My portrait is more vibrant, and also more flawed. I painted every wrinkle, every dark spot; Josh’s portrait feels less harsh.
