This is a recent drawing I did. I'm just started work on a portrait of the same model. Different pose however. I may paint this image as well but if I do I think I'll try and really down play the shadow side of the face.
I did this painting on a palette for the Florence Griswold Museum's Christmas tree. I was honored to be asked to be a part of this since I admire so many of the other artists that have contributed to this tree in the past.
