David Shevlino's painting of me
My painting of David Shevlino
This was totally fun! And challenging! I so rarely get the chance to paint a portrait from life these days, so that was a definite treat.
It's always a pleasure to hang out with other artists, and the Philadelphia/NJ/Delaware area has a lot of them. David's work is particularly gorgeous - you can see some more of his work on his website, of course; also, he has two great videos outlining his painting approach - you can find them at this link on his website. You can get a preview of these videos on his YouTube channel, at this link.
