Acrylic Portraits

My latest work is a study in portraiture.

It was an unexpected leap to go from illustrating portraits to painting them. I had a few gut-wrenching interludes, yet I found myself happy with the finished work.

I enjoy painting details with fine brushes. Usino a watered-down high quality black acrylic, I achieve an easy flow to outline each figure.

I’m having so much with this and I am excited to see what I develop next.

Thanks for stopping by,
