"Ashley" ©

Painting from life is always a challenge, whether landscape or portrait. The land seems somewhat easier then the simple human form. Yet painting a person is so interesting, all of those color shifts within one surface that gently curves this way and that. Yesterday I was lucky to have the opportunity to paint "Ashley", a lovely lady, engaged to be married and it was her 28th birthday.

Hi Laura,
Very nice and the human is hard to paint and for it to look like a real person.

Thanks Ruth, I am so intrigued with people and each unique face. I'll keep practicing and improve.
