How To Paint Details...



It is all in the details, don't you think?  This is a close-up of a portrait I painted in Sweden two weeks ago on a pilgrirmage to Anders Zorn Land with Jeremy Lipking and friends.
I was assisting Jeremy Lipking. Lucky for me. He is pure gold.

If you want more details about this trip, seeing a few of my sketches and musings. post your comments here.

Otherwise, I am as good as gold...

You do a beautiful job with your portraits. You have a knack for knowing which details are important, without overwhelming the piece with details. I like that, and it's not an easy effect to achieve! I think it makes your work more artistic than many others.
