Titled "Family"

16" x 12"  Soft Pastel on UART paper

Here'so one of the latest commissioned pieces I've  had the pleasure of creating.  The client provided the photo via email.  The challenge was to create depth in the shadowed area of these brothers faces.  

I don't feel I could've pulled  off what I did here without the regular practice of drawing & painting from life.  To clarify . create the illusion of form when a photo shows none.

  1. Very nice! And I agree about the experience of painting from life to help with photo references.
