Sharing Elin’s completed 2 year portrait today. It’s so fun to see her first year and second year portraits side by side. I can see how I have improved and the likeness is definitely better this year. Portraits are seriously fun, but incredibly challenging. I have yet to complete a decent self-portrait, notoriously the most difficult challenge for any given artist. Might have to give it a go in the next few months.
First up, however, is a commissioned painting for the hubs. I shared an IG of the photograph he has asked me to paint shortly before I went on maternity leave. If you don’t follow along, it’s a photo of an elderly Mexican man sitting on a stone wall amongst bright, little buildings. Eric took the photo in Mexico a million years ago when he was netting bats in the name of science. I plan to get started on this painting tonight, and will possibly have a WIP image to share on Monday. Have a great weekend!!!
