Portrait Oil Painting
For me, August was the month of oil painting! My over the top talented sister, Kristy Gordon, taught a three day oil painting workshop in Nelson. I rarely paint in oils, and I hardly ever get to paint from a live model, so I was super excited to take it.
Above is the outcome. And I must say, I'm pretty happy with it. The model, Amber, had such a great look. In my painting, she really looks like a proud viking woman.
It feels so great to keep pushing my skills and trying new techniques.
