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.
