JAKE

6x6, oil

This was a quickie at the end of the model session on Monday.  I totally loved just putting down the paint.  My thing for the day was mixing shadow colors and revisiting values.  A day is just not enough.  Just about the time I start discovering, the day is over.

Dori, what wonderful portraits you've done the last few days. Such subtle palettes yet strong paintings.
