Facebook friends portraits

7″ x 5″ unframed pastel

I’m a bit intimidated with portrait work. When I was a kid I wanted to be one of those artists I always saw at the street shows painting people on site with pastels. Fear got in the way so I never pursued it.

Since I still have a craving to paint portraits I decided on a less intimidating and fun project. This is the first in a series of facebook friends profile pic paintings. I’m going for fun so my choices of pics will hopefully reflect that.

I’m not using full names for obvious reasons. In some cases I might ;-)
