The Portrait

Well, I thought the painting was complete but, I guess it was complete as of November 23. Had one more go at this past week in Rebecca Schweiger's Art Class (The Art Studio NY. (www.rebeccarts.com) She suggested that I add more light and dark contrasts to highlight the contours and add greater depth to the face. So, here is the painting again, as of December 7, 2008. As an additional note, Rebecca has posted some of her art students work on her website and I'm very happy to announce that my Sedona painting has been included. You can see it at: http://www.rebeccarts.com/pages/artstudiogallery1.html When you get to the slideshow, if you take your curser and touch the center picture, streaming numbers will appear. Just click on it and you can slide to # 26 (my painting) of the 27 paintings on display. Or, you can take a few minutes to look through all of paintings. It's a wonderful little gallery exhibit unto itself.
