Portrait of Hooter

Well there is a warning that artist should not paint a portrait of someone close to them. Oh well, so I decided to break the rules. There is still another layer of Umber to go but I decided to let it dry before working any further.

This time I am working from a photograph. It is of a self portrait that my brother once used as a profile for his flicker account. The photo I am working from has so much of his personality. Luckily I saved a copy before he replaced it. The recent photo is another one of my favorites where he is looking distantly out of a window to a beautiful snow scene.

We are worlds apart distantly but I like being around him because music sounds so much better when he's there.

  1. Kim you are a very talented young lady. This portrait is great.

  2. I don't know what your brother looks like, so I can't comment on the likeness, but it is a terrific portrait - really captures personality and character.

  3. Cheers Gabrielle. My brother has just sent me a link to it so I'll add it to the post.

  4. ...beautiful portrait, and i went to the link and recognized him immediately from your drawing (your words about him are so nice too).

  5. Thank you Kelly. My brother and I are pretty close.


It would be great to hear from you.
