"Copy after Ivan Kramskoy"
10 x 8 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I hope everyone had a great holiday season, I cannot believe the year is almost over. This Christmas I had a great time with family and friends. I was happy to also paint and enjoy the time with everyone, I would sneak in a couple sessions when the ladies were in the kitchen cooking. I always seem to go back to Kramskoy whenever I need to practice, his portraits are captivating and his technique is breathtaking. I never regret doing these little studies I learn from them with each session. I will post other studies I did from Kramskoy in later post.
I did not take any process pictures other than this one. This a good description how I develop a portrait.
Happy Holidays everyone and a Happy New Year!
