Portrait of "TJ"

<<<< Previous     Page 3 of 6     Next >>>>

The photo at left was taken of TJ as he skipped stones across a creek. When his name was called and he looked up, I pressed the shutter on the camera. It was a great moment that had terrific potential as a painted portrait.

The finished portrait, above(right), was painted in a very free-form - almost impressionistic - manner. That seemed to fit the mood the best. While this could just as easily have painted in a vertical format, like the photograph, I decided to paint it as a close-up in order to get as much of his face on canvas as possible. You can see that painting him with more vivid colors really brought the painting to life.
