Cousin, painted

Cousin Painted, 9x12, acrylic on paper, Patricia Bennett
I added paint on top of my drawing (the drawing was posted earlier on the blog).  Acrylic turns out to be pretty flexible for this style of painting.

Today we looked at Bonnat portraits at the Walters Museum.  Bonnat used small brushstrokes and powerful lights and darks.  His portraits are textural and very strong.

I also got photos of my model for a "corporate" portrait.  We're figuring out the pose.  It'll be 30x40.
