Some of you may have noticed I skipped my portrait class again on Friday. There were a couple of reasons for that, but the main one is that I wanted to get started on my next real project.
This time, I even have a deadline.
My little brother is getting married at the end of February, and has asked me to paint a portrait of him and his fiancee, which of course I’m only too happy to do. So for the next couple of weeks, as I make progress I’ll be posting it, hopefully not too sporadically.
Below is the initial sketch, which I traced using the projector. It’s rough, but the important thing is that all the important parts are where they belong. I’ve sprayed it with fixative, and it’s drying right now. At some point this afternoon, the fun begins 🙂
