Autumn Approaching by Jean Hildebrant

Currently unavailable for purchase

A portrait of my lovely niece, Dena. Shot with my Rebel XT in late afternoon, with sun behind her for a halo effect.

I am an artist working in oils and pastels as well as photography. My subject matter is mainly portraiture and figures. I have been painting for many years and have won awards for my paintings including a first place award in the Pastel Journal Magazine’s Pastel 100 competition and first place in the Richeson 75 competition.
I am married with two grown children and reside in Scottsdale, AZ.

    So beautiful! wana draw….

  • Somehow I missed your comment, sorry. If you draw this, please give me credit as the photographer and please do it in monochrome. Since I am a portrait painter myself, I might want to paint this at a later date.
    Thanks for the compliment. You are a very talented artist! :)

  • Also please send me a link to your drawing so I can share it with my niece, the model.
