Portrait painting with Leslie DeMille

I was fortunate to participate in a week long intensive portrait painting workshop given by Leslie DeMille, a nationally esteemed portrait painter. We painted 7 portraits in 5 days! I learned some new techniques and how to use a new paper. Les was patient with us all, and the skills I learned will improve not only the portraits I paint, but all my paintings. 

"Wes" on velour paper, a new surface for me. I like the texture!

"Dane" with with himself. I was experimenting with colored paper. Not my favorite, but fun.
