BB Quick portrait

BB Quick portrait, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. My daily portrait of BB,
done very quickly on Artrage--from life from scratch. One layer.

Love the blue background.

Thanks. Artrage is fun to play with!

He looks angry. Very expressive!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

That's more his Questioning look, or his, "Oh, REALLY?" look.

Thanks! :-D

I painted it from scratch, not from a photo, but from actually looking at him. Cool.

Yes, it's definitely an "Oh really" look!

From scratch! that's fantastic!

My goal is to be able to paint/draw people who really look like who they are. I did this super fast and was pretty pleased with it--it definitely looks like BB! (Not perfect, but close enough!) Often, I make art from photos, so I was pretty pleased to just do it. With no photo.

I'd like to be able to do it both ways.
