Jane (studies for The Procession), 16x16” oil on gessoboard. . Wrote a bit in my previous post about working in a slightly different way- more immediate, faster and less “fussy”. This is more like how I approach my plein air work and it’s translating well into these #portraitpaintings I think. Like with plein air work, painting the #portraitfromlife places us in the very active position of “participant” not just “observer”. Being inside of and surrounded by a landscape gives us so much information about the place, we inevitably respond not just to value shapes and color but also to the heat/cold, the wind, the smells, the creatures great and small that wander by. With the portrait, a similar intimacy is created. Stories are exchanged. We learn about each other. There are things to laugh at, there are things to feel sad about maybe. Emotions pass across a face and are witnessed. I’ve felt such a rich sense of connection in these brief sessions. Oh, and have laughed my ass off.

Cedric (studies for The Procession), 16x16”, oil on gessoed panel Two painting sessions from life with @cedricsmithstudio (about 2 1/2 hours each), plus another three hours on the background and I’m calling it done. This is FAST for me. With this and the other portraits I’m working on here in Savannah, I’m trying a new way of working and it means letting go of perfectionism. It means not building up dozens of layers or noodling details or refining/re-stating/re-touching. It means that I am not sure if it’s really a painting. Should I call it a “sketch” instead? Is it finished like this? With a quarter of the hours I might normally be inclined to spend? Interesting questions have come up in my head about how I define or quantify the worth of my work and of myself as a painter in realtion to time spent working. I’m excited by this work though. It has been energizing and inspiring, most especially for those hours in person. I feel that in NOT refining as much as I usually tend to, I’ve captured a little more movement/emotion... Even as I sit in front of this one in my studio, my brush-hand is itching to just get in there, just touch on this or that. And, fortunately, there isn’t really time. And, fortunately, I’m a little in love with the rough places. The adventure continues. . . #portraitpainter #portraitpainting #narrativerealism #scadalumni #savannahart #savannahartist #poetsandartists #maninhat #painterspaintingpainters #womanpainter #narrativeportrait #contemporaryrealism

While in Savannah I’m working on some portraits of some pretty amazing humans. It’s been really great to sit and visit with these friends and to connect, to get to know them better, hear their stories, watch their faces move and change like the sky as thoughts and feelings pass through. These sessions have been so rich and inspiring for me. Here’s an in-progress shot by the sitter himself, @cedricsmithstudio. More to come... #paintingfromlife #portraitpainting #savannahartist #savannahart #narrativeportrait #portraitinprogress #happypainter
