Figure Drawing for November 26, 2009


In honor of Thanksgiving, here is a portrait I painted of my boss, the Wife, from a photograph.  It's probably one of the best paintings I've done so far (the picture seems a little dark and doesn't really capture all the shading, etc.).  And I don't think I did too badly on the the Boss part, either--I married WAAAYYYYYY above my station.  :-)

As mushy as it all sounds, I am very thankful for my wife, two daughters, the rest of my extended family, friends, and almost everything else.  Huzzah!  :-)

The painting took about 3 hours and is approximately 7" x 14".  It is black-and-white, water-miscible oil paint on gessoed hard board.
