Those cool and lupid green eyes of this beautiful redhead, forever they will haunt me those lovely green eyes that belong to Phoebe….. those beautiful green eyes, that go with her fire red long hair and a temper to match it. You never want to be around…… when this redhead is mad.
Phoebe used to model for me when I had a professional photo studio years ago, and once in awhile she will model for figure and portrait painting(s) such as this one.However this one was painted about 4 years ago. She is even more beautiful now as….. she has really matured. Still has that brillant red hair and….. the temper although I think it has gotten better.
I don’t really care to do that much portrait work even though that was my bread and butter for me for many years. Portraits are alot of work and to do a really good portrait you have to get to know the sitter, the subject/client. get to know their personality their movements the way they talk and act and their character, and pay very close attenion how they act in front of you is that really their personality and of course take a lot of photographs and have them sit for a least a quick rough color layout/study that you can finish later or work from that color study to correct composition, if need be. Its more work than I want to do sometimes, but always a challenge.
Most people offer you a photograph (usually a bad one) and say can you paint this? How many times have we artists heard that. Can you paint my daughter and make it look like her
HUH!!!!!!!!!!

As a self-taught working artist, I have always believed that we are all blessed with gifts. It’s up to us to recognize and develop them; to what extent we will use those gifts to benefit others that cross our path.

    Great work Rey. I so agree with your comments about portraiture! It is so difficult to do a portrait from a photo of someone you don’t know, and to get the REAL person and a good likeness you have got to look at them from every angle, and like you say, get to watch their movements. The eyes in this painting are amazing.

  • thank you so very much and I see you have done some portrait work
