Tribute Portrait Commission

I was recently commissioned to paint this tribute portrait of a gal who had recently lost her battle with cancer. Every pic I had been sent as reference, she had a glow about her. THAT'S what I hoped, most of all, to capture. What I had done with this piece, is maintain the layers in Photoshop, of the entire process, from sketch to the last adjustment layers. Its to be played, as a animation at her memorial service.  Text will be placed at the left, hence the landscape format.

Color Studies

Going to whip out a couple of these a day or at least, one a day. Good practice. If not in color, grey scale, too.  Adding to the sketchbook and sketch art.

Going to participate in this. First three posted in the Sketchbook. The next twenty-seven will be either painted (gouache/watercolor/color pencil), pencil and/or ink. I love this type of challenge, gets me to practice more.
