"When I'm old and gray, I want to have a house by the sea. And paint. With a lot of wonderful chums, good music, and booze around. And a damn good kitchen to cook in."
This one is so intense! POWERFUL!
I want your talent in my next life.
Great portraits! I like your strong stroke of the brush. All the best, Kathrin
Your brushstrokes are so precise! Love the small size and dark background. It really makes his features pop!
What a great start to an inspired challenge. Be curious to see if any of the 'mug-ees' will recognize themselves.
Love the mugshots! What a cool idea.
I have a random unrelated question - how do you phtograph the people in museums for your paintings? Every museum in NM says no cameras. Is is incognito? Do you get permission?
Just fantastic, Karin! This would be a great "different strokes" challenge. I just love the idea, would love to try it. where do you get the mug shots?
They're all over the world wide web Tonya.
Dee, I only use my camera in places that allow it.
Okay, thanks. I thought about popping mine out but it just felt too weird!
Love this new series! So glad to see you're doing portraits...your style translates so well. Your DSFDF portraits were so great and always left me wanting to see more, so Thanks!
I really like the sculpted feel to these portraits. Tough exercise. Good luck.
Your idea of painting 100 faces is inspired! It will be fun for us to watch the process! Thanks!
