had another painting session with shea tonight. the next one should be the final pass. happy to finally be wrapping this up. seeing as it’s my most ambitious portrait yet, i look forward to scaling back a bit.
i’ve been working on a large 3/4 portrait of my friend shea for the past few months. it’s been a great experience as i haven’t had the opportunity to paint a person from life since graduating (besides self portraits), nor have i really had the challenge of doing one over an extended period of time. before starting on the large painting, i did this quick one day study.
