"Head Study1_ Defiance"

"Defiance"
6"x6", oil on gesso board


Here is "Head Study 1

This is from a model-mugshot. I see the defiance in her expression. I wonder any body could tell who she is.
I realized that there are endless supply of mug shots. It will be interesting to see how my way of painting evolves. I like to get much more bold and expressive.
I am thinking about to focus onto one subject matter. Maybe Head studies...... a small size painting a day, so call, Daily Painting.

So far,I couldn't  post every day.
Often I  take too long to figure out the subject and setting up and lighting.
If I eliminate those prep time to slow me down.....

I  always thought I have to paint from the real setting to do good painting: actual setup for Still life painting, outdoor trip for Pleinair painting, live models for figurative works.....
Recently, I did some head paintings from photograph. It was not that bad as I thought.
I have more fun to do human head than still life. There are emotions and expressions to pull out even from the bad photos.
