In my downtime recently I’ve taken it upon myself to work on some portraits to flesh-out that part of my portfolio. Admittedly, I rarely do portraits. I think I’ve always lacked the confidence in my ability to create a recognizable likeness, but I’m going to have to get over that. I took a quick internet poll, and the suggestion made by the amazingly talented illustrator Kali Ciesemier took the palm. So here is my first of a series I will be completing.
This is also a subtle homage to one of my favorite portrait paintings by Leonardo daVinci “Lady with an Ermine”
