Mr. Lincoln

$80.00 plus s&h
This painting is the result of the Daily Paintworks Challenge. Each week, an artist from that group posts a challenge for all artists. This week, it's to paint Old Abe. Here is my solution, painted from a photo. Since I've been painting from life for quite a while, it was interesting painting from a photo again! I like how this one turned out.

Head Study 3-1

Last night, the scheduled model didn't arrive, so one of the artists in our class volunteered.
And a great model he was! He was so still. The fact that he was focusing on my mineral spirits jar was a little unnerving at times, because I felt he was watching me paint the whole time.
Another great night of painting! I'm quite satisfied with this one.
