It's been thirty+ years since I've been a professional portrait painter, and haven't looked back. That is, until a friend recently asked me to do her portrait for a one-woman performance series next year, an image that may be printed on posters advertising her show. This is a mixture of her face and that of her character, the great Lillian Carter. At any rate, it was a pleasure to create it, an interesting challenge, and I'm enjoying the result.
I chose Stonehenge Kraft paper, watercolor base, and conte crayon sticks for the project.
