|charles reid portrait: next washes|
i monkeyed around with the mouth too much and clearly was having some trouble painting it with all the small complicated shapes that an open smiling mouth presents...at least for me. i need to work out a better way to paint these or work with someone who has better handle on it. that not withstanding, i think this turned out okay and will declare it finished. i enjoyed doing this portrait of this well known and loved artist and teacher charles reid. i hope you enjoyed reading and watching along. if you are a painter and haven't had the opportunity to attend a workshop with charles, i have just one word for you....do. the way he handles paint, brush, and teaches students are legendary and will change your painting for the better. enough for now. be well.
