Raymond is a very good friend of our family. This kind-hearted man has the most beautiful skin and graciously accepted to “sit” for a group of us, so we could paint him from life. What a trooper! Thanks Raymond! Nothing hones in your skills like painting from life. There is so much more to see than what the camera gives you; nuances that the photo just can’t catch.
It’s tough painting from real life. But it’s worth it.
