Portraits all started with a challenge to something difficult and different. After painting thousands of abstract cow portraits it was time to branch out.

Over the past few years I have started to invest time in this area. I would love to see it really take off but that means I need to get my butt in gear and start painting more of them. But before I do I wanted to get some education so I’m currently developing more skills.

It’s pretty amazing the amount of information and detail that need to be included in a portrait to capture a likeness of someone. It’s a challenge that I wanted so I guess I need to suck it up and keep learning…
