Boy Portrait

Childrens Portrait Artist Atlanta

24x30 full figure portrait of Brock.
Background is an oil wash with limited greenery... wanted to keep the focus on the subject and his really cool cowboy boots.

Portrait Bust

............Recent bust portrait of a local girl. Background is the front of her home. Portrait size is 20x24 inches...a really nice size for this type of portrait. Bust portraits include head and shoulders, some upper torso and can include hands. Background can range from tonal colors to specific locations.

Albert Heijn

...........Portrait detail of Dutch supermarket magnate Albert Heijn from a few years ago. His company owned Bi-Lo Foods at the time. I'm just finding out about his passing...from what I can tell,in 2011.

Foreshortened arm

..............Fun pose from model Robin S at last nights life drawing class. This one was 10-12 minutes...probably would have overworked it with more time. Conte and pastel.

A Good Book

.............My first attempt at this sketch failed so I started over...this is about 7-8 minutes. Conte and paste. Model- Erin

Red Shoes

...............Great to be back at some life drawing after a 4 or 5 week break. Laura H was our model.
