'Down by the River, by RK Schlueter
Oil on 24" canvas.
Painting portraits is so very difficult, yet I seem compelled to practice it. Here I've used Vermeer's Girl with Pearl Earring as a reference, why not? I don't mind making a fool of myself...besides you never know what you can accomplish unless you go for it. I'm searching for a way to proceed that feels natural. I don't feel I'm getting what I want yet, I know it's within my grasp! The portrait work of Andrew Daniel's inspires me very much and shows a way to achieve more with less!
My artwork is being featured at Sewell Gallery of Fine Art during the month of October.
My reception is Saturday Oct. 4, 6-9pm. I hope to see you!
