John Singer Sargent: “A portrait is a painting with something wrong with the mouth.” I laugh every time I think of him saying this, as he was such a master of portraiture. It is both a curse and a blessing that WAS-H’s take-in is tomorrow so I have to stop and sign it!
Whew! 6 min pose, rushed painting brings about energetic lines! Liz Hill pushed me to take risks!
Here are a couple figure paintings I did this weekend in a wonderful workshop with Liz Hill. What a stretch for me, and so much fun. Thank you Liz!
