This portrait is one of about five, six at most portraits I've ever done and I mean in a life time, ok doesn't include jockeys wearing goggles or teeny wee riders with featureless faces. I could make the excuse that it's because I've been so busy painting horses, dogs landscapes e.t.c. I don't have time, but I think it's more being really way out of my comfort zone. Could also lie in the fact that I'm not really a people person, I communicate so much easier with animals, I don't have the same empathy with people. So my New Year's resolution this year is to do more people paintings....my fingers trembled as I typed that lol......well baby steps first, I'll start with little studies first and work my way up, yep feel braver already :)
Not into the New Year just yet so I'm off to look for something safe to paint. Thanks as always for looking in, have a great day where ever you are.
