Scott is a friend of my husband’s, actually, but since Steve isn’t on facebook, I get all the status updates that Scott posts and pass them along. It’s not in the marriage vows, but I don’t mind.
I’ve always wanted to draw Scott’s face, almost since I first met him. He’s got wonderfully strong features, just fascinating to me, really. This painting did not go well at first and I ended up brushing it out and starting over again. It’s still not perfect, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about doing a series, you have to be able to let a piece go and move on. As it is, I’m pleased the way it resolved in the end and that’s the main thing.
(I’m behind in my daily posts. Forgive me, I’ll try to catch up as I go along. I will get to them all so please be patient.)
Here are the progress pics.
This is my 30 Friends in 30 Days series. Each day I take a friend’s selfie and make a pastel painting from it. Then I post it to ebay at auction for 7 days. Follow my progress as I learn to paint pastel portraits with a little help from my friends.
