more portraits

Posted on by Wess Foreman

I've been painting a bit lately - getting ready for the Madisonville Art Market next month - and here are a couple of portraits I've recently completed. The first is of my niece Della and it's on a 14x11" canvas. This one was basically a practice painting, trying out a quick technique where most of the painting was accomplished with a relatively large brush, followed by last minute perfecting with a smaller detail brush. Worked out well.

The second is a large 40x30" family portrait of my wife, son and myself. This was painted from a photo taken around a year ago. It was fun to do [meaning it didn't take very long to finish], and I'm reasonably happy with the finished product.
