Radiating Personality-Portrait

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel..

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The hostess was Lin, and she provided great photos to work from.
The lady in this painting is Lin herself. The reference photo seemed to radiate character and personality. So, I gave myself the challenge to try and capture that in this painting.
It was surprising how much fun this one was! At the moment, I'm happy with it.

  1. Wonderful painting, Dean!! You caught her expression perfectly.

  2. So fabulous!! Beautiful work, Dean!

  3. There is so much of character being portrayed here with that smile and the way she closed her eyes at the glaring sun(?).. very well done!

  4. I love this! Excellent work Dean.

  5. This is so dynamic and exciting--her expression is so alive. Beautifully painted!

  6. Dean this lady really does shine with character.

  7. I ran over to look at the photo---the resemblance is spot on! very painterly--excellent!
