N.C. Mallory for JKPP



Pin It
A really enjoy doing these portraits for Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr.com
This one I particularly had fun with creating since I had such a great reference to work from: Contrasting light, interesting angle and a face full of character.

You can check out Norman's drawings and paintings here.

I'm really honored that my painting "Butterfly girl" was awarded 3rd prize in the Atelier Magazine painting competition.
The winning paintings will be on display in the CODA-museum in Apeldoorn until January 6th of 2013.

In the picture here I'm posing in front of my painting with Marianne Thieme from the Animal Rights Party.

Anna Black for JKPP

Anna Black oil painting
"Anna Black", oil on panel, 24x30cm. No longer available.




















Phew, it's been pretty busy lately and I've been neglecting my blog a bit.
I started this portrait during a recent Open Atelier. The idea was to show the visitors a little bit of my painting technique and to have something to do during quiet times. But, probable caused by the good weather there was a big turnout and I was doing more talking than painting, a bit of a luxury problem..
So in the end I decided to finish the painting at home. The subject is Anna Black for Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr.com

During the Open Atelier visitors could win an oilpainting of 2 calves, and the winner of the painting is Annette Bal-Krijgsman from Leimuiden, congratulations!
