IMG_9464this is  my first attempt at painting a portrait in oil. I have done many pencil portraits and a few in watercolor. This one was particularly fun because it is my grandson. I think that I will probably go back in and finish out the background, but I wanted to put this up here for now. I am really looking forward to trying a few more portraits. I took several cute photos of him while on vacation last month. It will make for great practice! This shot was in such beautiful sunlight that I just couldn’t resist giving it a try.

About Artwithmycoffee

I live in Juneau, Alaska where the inspiration in nature abounds! I love taking photos of this beautiful place and then painting them. In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork. A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, m by Richard Robinson, and with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting. This year my goal is to paint almost daily and to try to get outdoors more and paint en plein air (or out doors from life). I also hope to come up with something interesting to blog about it all ( =
