Small Sketch

It's taken some time to get back to the blog, but I did take a photo of that small alla prima piece I did about ten days ago. This is oil on masonite, 8" x 6". From life and references. The photo is a bit redder than the sketch. It's far from perfect, but I liked the sitter's expression, which I interpret as an emotional emptiness, a psychologic distance from us, the observers. To see a larger image, click on the picture.

Mostly these last days have been devoted to multiple sittings for two portraits that are currently in progress, but I'm about to start a series of new landscapes, I think. More on that later.

And I'm still working on the cats.
