Portrait of Mike Brennan by Marcy Brennan

9" x 12" Oil on Masonite - Artist's Collection

This is my first portrait!  It is of my husband Mike.  I completed most of it in my Intuitive Oil painting class and finished it up the same day at home.  My goal was to get the features in the right place and to express the portrait by the use of color as much as form.  The challenging part was that my reference photo was on my iphone and it wasn't a head shot!  The screen kept going blank and I had to constantly turn the phone back on to see what I was painting.  Next time, I'll print the photo on paper ;-)

This was my reference photo
