For the Love of Acrylic Painting

2014-10-02 16.27.34

This portrait painting of one of my sons isn’t quite finished, but I hope to work on it once I’m done with another project. Painting with acrylics in portraiture art is my second love, my first being writing. I’m sure you can tell the cat needs more detail and tweaking, too. I love the challenge of a getting skin tones right. It’s so very difficult to do. I used to paint with oils because the drying time allows for so much more leeway, but acrylics are easier in the end.

  1. wait! what! you have a son? he looks at least ten in the above portrait – which is wonderful by the way! love the expression on the cat’s face! your picture does not look like you are old enough to have children that old!! [that might, however, explain the whole coupon fanatacism… ]

    • I actually have 5 kids and they’re all teens. The oldest is 19. I can’t believe it myself. Where does the time go? And yes that is a recent photo, although I need to redo it since I had lasik surgery in the summer and don’t wear glasses anymore.
