Portraits & Figures
Portrait and figure drawing is one of my key interests. I work primarily from photographs and models, complete commissions and self-chosen subjects, and occasionally work conceptually (with no visual reference). A sample of photos appears below. These paintings and drawings span from 2014 to today. Some of the oldest are at the bottom, but the gallery is grouped by subject and style, not really in chronologically.
I do a lot of pet portraits. These are a lot of fun. I typically do not find as much time as I would like to work on the vignette portraits I have cooking in my mind, like the ones directly below. I hope to be updating soon with more of these. There. I’ve said it publicly. I’ll have to make time now. Hah.
These two pieces directly above here are interesting because the painting (green background) is my mom around the age I was when I did the following self-portrait drawing. Striking resemblance!
If you would like to buy something you see or commission a portrait of your own, please feel welcome to contact me.
