My most recent painting! I finally got around to pulling out my acrylic paints again, and what a surprise, it only took me about 12 hours to complete the entire painting! This is a picture of my father in law. As soon as I saw the photo (taken with a fish-eye lens, obviously!) I knew that it had to become something more. I was inspired by a painting project my camp kids did over the summer, to paint a portrait using only warm or cool colors. I felt that the warm colors would provide the energy already radiating from this photo. I love the way I turned out! I definitely want to do more portraits in this style.
