My newest piece is “The Gold Bangle”. This pastel portrait of a young woman is 14×18 pastel on paper done from my source photos. The model is Katrina Sherwood, who is also a muse for Cuong Nguyen. I had the pleasure of painting her at a workshop at Cuong’s studio. She modeled for several reference shots for me, so I have several future works in mind.
Have been working on a new pastel painting to be titled “The Gold Bangle”. Here I am building up the flesh tones to start modeling the hands. The finished pastel portrait image should be 16 x 20.
I am pleased to introduce “The Writer”. This pastel portrait painting of a young man is on Art Spectrum Colourfix paper, and is a finished frame size of 24 x 27 (18 x 21 mat window image). The model is our nephew, Gordon James Asti, who is an actor and writer in Hollywood.
