Natalie with Candle

Oil on 9x12" panel

Natalie is my friend and fellow painter Linda Mitchell's granddaughter. Again, being that the cost of hiring a model is beyond my means at this time and not practical at this stage, photos are really convenient to work from. And they do inspire. Portraiture is my favorite subject, I'need more practice. Sean Cheetham is and Alice Neel  are two of my favorite portrait painters. I like Van Gogh's portraits too. So much to be inspired by, I feel grateful.
