An early 2019 "commission" of sorts.
I never painted a parrot, and as I learned, these two had been together for over 20 years.
After learning of their long relationship, putting the pose together wasn't too difficult.
My first and hopefully, my last parrot commission.
It took no less than six work sessions and a number of minor sessions
to bring this one to an acceptable conclusion.

Dogs and women owners; I can't leave them alone.
My affinity for fashion can always fill the time.
A much-needed return to daily sketching.

Turning fashion sketches into short oil studies.
A favorite of mine.
First pass of a 12x16" commission titled:
"The Traveler"
Somewhat more difficult is turning model pencil sketches
into oil on canvas studies.  Multiple sessions are required.

Finished work titled: "The Traveler"
