Giraffe Portrait - Final, Stage One & Two

Stage One of The Painting
Stage Two
Final Version - 9"x 12" Watercolor - 140lb Cold Press Paper
The demo for my Open Studio group this week was on painting a giraffe. Most of the group worked on painting the head & neck portion of the animal. My students did wonderful work and I think we were all surprised at how much fun we had with this subject. The other images in this post are at stage one (the underpainting) & stage two of the painting. It was meant to be a quick and simple project. Hope you like my little giraffe!

11"x 14" Watercolor

This painting was so much fun to do. I put in no background because I wanted the painting to focus on the connection between mother and child, physically AND emotionally. The relationship between mother and child is almost magical. I was excited about creating a painting that celebrates that special bond. I hope you like it. Click the image for a larger view.

Bayside Crab Shanty

Pastel - 11" x 15"
This pastel painting is based on an old dock building that is still in use. It is situated next to a long dock and is so visually pleasing. I enjoyed this one and plan to do others in the future. Click on the image for a larger view. Hope you like it.

11"x 14" Watercolor on 200lb Cold Press Paper
Another recent portrait of a baby, but this one of a little boy. Painting a baby's portrait is quite different from an adult. One must use a totally different palette and hard lines are rarely effective on the soft, sweet face of an infant. I loved doing this painting...especially portraying the adorable pouty lip expression.

Portraiture is my favorite genre and this one was a delight to do! Witnessing a likeness emerge from your brush and palette is always a magical experience. I hope you like this one. If you're interested in learning more about commissioning a painting, email me and I'll send along an info document that explains the process. It's most likely more affordable than you think!
