6" x 4"
This was the model for Romel de la Torre when he gave a portrait demo at the Southern Atelier in Sarasota. I took a few snapshots of the model and couldn't resist doing my own version later. Romel's portrait was gorgeous, done with flair and confidence. I learned a few things about technique, such as wiping the canvas with linseed oil before starting. This keeps the paint from sinking in and allows it to flow. I also liked the way Romel played with color, put it on thick and let it sit.
