One of my favorite things about learning from the masters, is how I can incorporate their past brushstrokes and palettes, to my own modern way of painting. Combining the two styles, is a challenge and a learning experience. This is one of my favorite portraits so far this year, and it was based on the lesson that featured Leonardo da Vinci.
Portrait of Giovanna – 14 x 18 inch acrylic on stretched canvas
Last year, I had the opportunity to paint on bigger canvases, and I really loved working in a larger scale. This canvas, is larger than my usual 8 x 10 and 11 x 14 inch portraits. And I really loved being able to use that extra space to explore that free flowing hair…that seems to have a life of its own!
This portrait is now available through DailyPaintworks, as an auction, or Buy It Now feature.
