More Commissioned Portraits

Another portrait commission of siblings. Graphite and white charcoal on Strathmore tan paper. The challenge here was not to overdo it with the white charcoal. Just enough for highlights.

Young Girl

Still working only with Zorn palette; a limited palette of just four colors; titanium white, ivory black, yellow ochre, and cadmium red. Even with just those four, I feel there is so much colors I can reproduce. The Zorn palette works well with portraits and figures but with landscapes and still not quite sure.

Since the photo was from Pinterest and probably copyrighted, I cannot sell the painting.

Davis Art Open Studio – a Success!

The past weekend 28 artists in Davis open up their studios for visitors and possible sales. This was the second year for me. And I realized after this weekend that it will a part of my art yearly event.

This portrait is number 34 of oil portraits paintings that I had been doing in the Zorn palette. I wasn’t planning to sell it. It was laid out to dry completely and then later to be scan. But a dear friend wanted it and is interested in buying it.
