Wedding Oil Portrait of Jim and Ellen White.

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Wedding Oil PortraitWhen painting an oil portrait, the most important thing is attention to details, composition, drawing, colors and blending.

It was Jim and Ellen White’s 25 Wedding Anniversary. Jim wanted to give his wife a memorable present, a momentous of this important date. All they had was a wedding album with small photos. We selected a photo, and from that photo and looking at them today, the expression of their eyes, I created this painting. He specially wanted the flowers to be part of the portrait.

Instructions:

  1. Cover the canvas with a light coat of Raw Sienna and White, using acrylic.
  2. Draw the persons from the photo.
  3. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of raw sienna in acrylics because they dry faster. With raw sienna continue defining the features of the face. The under paint is very important because you are drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  4. Using oils, paint the background.
  5. Using oils start painting the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Paint the features of the face, putting emphasis in the expression of the eyes.
  6. Paint eyebrows, hair and clothes.
  7. Sign your work of art.

How to Built an Art Studio.
It All Started with a Dream.

Art StudioThis is video of a slide presentation, step by step, of the construction of my art studio until it was finished:

  1. First was the drawings and planning, dreaming about the final studio. I did so many drawings, changed my mind so many times, added space, took space out because I had a budget.
  2. Took the plans to the Franklin County to get the building permits. They didn’t approved our plans, so I had to hire a Structural Engineer.
  3. Once the plans were approved, we started building in the winter of 2015-2016, through ice, rain and some times snow. We have to thanks Justiniano Teofilo Perez, his brother Efren and his team for the amazing job that they did. With such a good spirit to solve the problems and continue working. We used to meet at 7:00am at the hardware store to get the materials.
  4. Finally it was finished, I hanged my paintings. Start exhibiting and the students came to classes.
  5. Thank you to my husband for his support and patience and my family and friends.
