Portrait of Princess

It was a pleasure to present Princess with my finished oil portrait and the other paintings and prints by other members in my drawing group. I had seen Princess bartending at Uncle Robert’s Awa night market for some time and had been inspired by her classic and beautiful Hawaiian features. When I finally got the courage to ask her to pose for us she graciously accepted the invitation and came to pose for us not just one, but several times. It’s rare to be able to paint from the same model and pose over a long duration. It’s the closest I have come to painting true royalty.

‘Unmarried Women’ a portrait series

I’ve been sorting through older artwork that has been stored at my parents’ house for years. Here are four drawings from a series of oversize portraits from 25 years ago or so. I called this series Unmarried Women. The sizes are 4’x3′.
