Here’s another quick portrait done for practice. Originally my plan was to record the process and upload it to youtube so I could show how it was done, but alas the best laid schemes of mice and men are oft to go plain bloody wrong. The video failed to work, after a 4 hour conversion process. Still, there’s always next time!
This is Keith & and his girlfriend Sue. As you can see they’re very much in love.
It’s Ok, she’s not real. These two are fictional characters I came up with for the fun of painting them. After the last portrait I did to practice and entertain myself I wondered how I could keep things fresh and increase the challenge a bit? The answer: two heads are better than one!
The real fun of doing a multi-person portrait is that you don’t just seek to convey the details of the faces, but to convey the relationship between the subjects too. I’ve got a brilliant idea for what I’m going to do next…
Yeah, thats right 3 people. It’s the logical progression isn’t it?
