John will be teaching a "Classical Portrait Painting" Workshop at The Arts Council or Princeton June 20-22!
I have not shown this in a while but like the effect I achieved with the Renaissance hood and the gold leaf. This is of Chelsea Allen, a co-worker and friend of mine while I worked in Princeton. She was one of my favorite models and I always lived trying to get her elusive expression.
The painting is 18x24" and is oil and gold leaf on canvas.
To draw, paint and create modern masterpieces that inspire and to empower students to draw and paint better than they dreamed they could.
