Diane Mannion, Charleen, 8x10" oil on linen
Charleen is receptionist and office staff member at Ringling Englewood Art Center. Her delightful personality greets folks at the door... lovely young woman. She posed during the painting class I was teaching, unfortunately only for two twenty minute sessions, wish it had been a few hours longer. This had to be finished from iPhone photo reference later.
Portraits are the most difficult subject for any artist to tackle. Not much room for errors, everything has to be precise to capture a good likeness. If it's off, it's really jumps out. Landscapes and still lifes are much more forgiving. But great skill sharpening practice for any artist!
