The Artist's Daughter

The Artist's Collection
Most artists enjoy working from models but rarely get a chance to do so. For one thing, models need to be paid for their time but working from life is also a luxury reserved for those who have few time constraints. Fortunately, my daughter is readily available and every few years she gets to put up with yet another portrait project involving her. I enjoy painting her each time and marvel at the differences I see.
The other benefit to having a built in model is that it gives me the opportunity to try new techniques! And that is just what I was able to do with this portrait.
Welcome! I'm so glad you are here and I hope you find some of the information I have shared helpful.
