Acrylic portrait on panel by Steve Eichenberger, 11-5/8 x 14-3/8 SOLD
I completed this portrait in a homestead farmhouse in Nebraska while on a road trip through several beautiful Western states last month. When I returned home, I e-mailed the above photo of it to the subject, who is an artist friend in Seattle; here’s what he had to say about it: “OK I am really speechless, or was, but now have more to say. That is really, really cool – almost Van Gogh-like in the colors and contrasts. I am thrilled to see this as I have never had a painting done of me and to tell you the truth would not trust many artists to do a painting of me as I am pretty shy about having pictures, images of me taken. Fantastic work! Can I show off your work to people? … I’ll be following your blog.”
I took the above reference photo in my studio with natural north light, positioning the subject to get just the right amount of light on his right eye.
