Girl from the North Country by Margaret Aycock oil on canvas
This is a class project. Scroll down and you can see my class working on " our girl." Everyone got a chance to choose a background, hair style and really anything else. We started with a photo of a pretty young woman and added and subtracted till we each got what we wanted. I like to use a photo as a jumping off point for my students so that I can teach them a method to create a portrait. This one was done in the style of the old masters. It is on Ebay auction this week. To check out my auction click here.
