Macy


Here is the commissioned portrait that I've been working on intermittently for quite a while: the lovely Macy and her sweet pooch, Allen. As I often do, I am posting at the point of about 99% finished, to take that final look before the last little adjustments are made.

I find that when I work at a slow and steady pace, as I have here, I seem to want to just keep going that way, and the finishing point remains far away... almost like a song that never ends... I could keep humming along happily! But, it's time to get Macy and Allen matted, framed and delivered to their home, so that finishing point has come, and it's time to stop the humming. I hope it will be enjoyed there as much as I have enjoyed creating it here!

Liz, that is an absolutely beautiful portrait. The skin tones you've achieved are perfect.

Its incredible! I'd love to know if you ever teach workshops, or if you know of any good ones for portraits and skin tones?
