Oil Portrait Progress

I have been working on an oil portrait of my brother, Danny Bedrosian. I still have some work to do, especially on the shirt and hair, but this is getting close to being done. The glare makes it a little difficult to see details in this photo, but once I'm finished and the painting has dried, I will varnish it and photograph or scan it with better lighting.

Shown here are a couple of photos of my piece Next hanging at the CPSA Exhibition in Dallas. The exhibit continues through the end of the month; more information can be found on my Events page. Thank you to Debbi Friedman, whose incredible piece Counterpoint in Green received the Award for Outstanding Achievement, for taking these photos!

Still Life Paintings Completed

I just completed these still life paintings working from life in my studio. The bottle for the painting on the right was illuminated with a daylight light bulb, whereas the setup for the painting on the left was illuminated with a regular incandescent light bulb. This was a good exercise to observe and paint objects under different lighting situations, but now I am tired of painting blue bottles, and so I am moving on to a portrait!
