So I've been getting a lot of portrait commissions in the past week and am strongly considering going that route. In the coming months I'll be updating this blog with the pieces I complete for clients as well as personal works to add flare to what I can offer as a portrait artist. The first drawing is a self-portrait I did a couple weeks back that is currently hanging on the wall at work for the Faculty Drawing Show. Lots of leftover hulkish white roses from a wedding, a nice burgundy red shirt and voila. Second is a drawing of my boss's beautiful one-year old daughter Alexandra. Possibly one of the most difficult drawings I've ever done, but it was worth it in the end. And lastly is my best friend Meg who modeled for me before she moved into her brothers after staying with me for about two months. I took several shots of her in different poses, so they will provide me with art fodder for quite some time. This drawing on wood was actually really fun. Its 10x10 inches but I want to make it larger, possibly 20x20 or 30x30 even, again with the intention of adding it to a portraiture portfolio as something different to offer other than the traditional portrait. Hope you guys enjoy.
