Senorita 16x20 framed $550.00

This painting has just won third place in oils in the annual River Art Group Show in La Villita, downtown San Antonio.  I am very happy to be in the top three.  I did this painting using photos from a live model from a workshop I took with Daniel Kaliwick.  I hadn't done a portrait in oil for quite a while although I do occasional portraits in pencil.  Portraits are good for your drawing skills because you have to get the nose, eyes, mouth etc in the right place and the right configuration--unlike say a tree or sky where you can play around with the shape and color.
