Oil on canvas
20" x 16"
This is Gabe, one of the models for a four-week portrait oil painting class that I attended, taught by Kevin Gorges, in Santa Fe. I think I probably unofficially flunked the class, because Kevin was pretty insistent that I attend at least the first two sessions of the next class. The big question with a portrait painting is always “Does the painting actually look like the model?” Yes. In fact, it actually looks even more like him than he does.
