The Muse – Portrait of my dear wife.

I sketch and draw my family members quite a bit.  Although it has become less in the past few years.  It is specially hard to get the children (teenage and adults) to pose now.  Painting is a little more elaborate and requires setup and time from the model, therefore I get very little cooperation on that from family members.   This painting was done from a photograph from 12 years ago,  it will replace the  charcoal drawing of my wife that hangs in our house.

Here is a Video Link of the making of the painting.

A daily dose of Inspiration…

The title says it all :).  The light source on the reference photo was not uni-directional and the contrast was not much, hence the challenge.  Thank you for visiting.  Do comment and Share and most of all Enjoy!
