End of the Year Challenge - Different Strokes From Different Folks 9 3/4 x 11 Oil on panel
This challenge is hosted by Karin Jurick on her Different Strokes From DIfferent Folks blog. Artists that chose to participate emailed a photo of themselves to Karin. When Karin had all of the photos, she randomly emailed a photo to an artist. So, most of us don't know much if anything about the subject of the portraits we would paint.
I really did enjoy making the painting of this lady - I don't know her name or anything about her yet. To understand what I'm saying, go to the Different Strokes From Different Folks blog and see what other artitsts have done. You can also go to You Tube to see the photos and the painting.
I'm having a problem with this BLOG posting software interface so I'm not sure how this will look! It appears one way in "compose" then another way after it's "published". :-| That being said, my next whine is that I had to make HUNDREDS (no kidding) of photographs before 1) the color was close, 2) the glare from the shiny surface was gone and 3) the photo was in FOCUS!
