Portrait of Emily by dcrivera Portrait of Emily by dcrivera
Here is another WIP. Please excuse the glare in the photo - I will post a better one when it is complete. I have been working pretty steadily on this and another larger portrait of a young girl since May. Lately I have become very interested in the soft and graceful expressions of female portraits. In addition to these, I am planning a few life-size full figure paintings, which, at the rate that I work, I might complete in the next five years!

Enjoy!

Yes, she modeled for a portrait painting class that I teach. It started off as a demo, and I decided to finish it on my own.

Very beautiful!
You did it with glazes or a kind of old masters technique?
Please see my work.

Thank you! The initial layer is done directly with an emphasis placed on bold warm/cool color relationships. I then used multiple layers of glazes on top, mainly to add color nuances, but also to dull down areas that were too vibrant.

Brilliant work. Liking the way it is now will the very detailed areas and areas still showing initial sketch work. I realise you are prob going to cover that to but I rather like the effect of showing both.

Thank you! I was originally planning on bringing the entire painting up to a high finish, but perhaps I will experiment with slightly less finished areas. Several people have told me they like my work in an unfinished state.
