finished my painting!

i have taken some time off from my personal sketches to work on a painting instead. this is mary kate from her book cover…i liked the lighting in the photo a lot so i decided to try to paint it. it was a big struggle at first, especially because i hadn’t painted in five years. once i got started it got a little bit easier. i used oil on canvas, and it’s about 12" x 36" or so, and took me one week to do.

here are some pics during the process…
