100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Micah, 15/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
I did this painting in December as kind of a dry run on this project. Looking at it now, with 14 other paintings under my belt, I can see things that I should change about this. I have already gotten better at painting portraits. Nothing beats time at the easel to increase your skills. I wonder what these portraits will look like by the time I'm doing the last 10.
The next group of ten, after the current group, will be painted on panels prepped with black gesso. Working on a black background changes a lot about how you approach a painting.
