Another great subject to paint for Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks Challenge. It was an interesting project in many ways - getting the posture of the gentleman, focusing on values and shapes, working on skin tones. The entries so far have been amazing, and you can see them on Karin's DSFDF Blog .

Camille LaRue Olsen said...

Hi Claire (my firstborn child's name -- you know I love it) I am admiring how well you captured the correct proportions (my achilles heel) on this figure, which was the main point of the assignment. In fact I'm about to do mine over so I can try and get his body right, like you did -- congratulations!

Claire said...

Thanks, Camille. I have to admit that I did not like my name as a child, but it sort of grew on me as I got older!
