If you have been following this blog for awhile you might recognize the start of this portrait. I finally have a chance to get back to it. All that I had done previously was the first washes on the background and her shirt. I continued now with a darker wash on the background and the start of her eyes.
For those of you wondering what has happened since my last post, the portrait of Shania has been accepted into the Portrait Society of Canada's show "The Art of Canadian Music". It will run from Mar 8-Apr 1 at the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto with the opening Mar 10th 6-8pm. I won't be there but if you are in the area I hope you drop in to see it. It looks much better in real life and the other artists in the show are some of Canada's best.
I have also been busy the last couple of weeks preparing for a workshop I am giving next week and that has taken a lot of time.
