#28 Abby - One Hundred Alla Prima Portraits of American Teenagers


"Learning about God is important to me.  Also my friends and family and learning to run and do yoga...learn to be yourself.  Everyone is unique."

I painted this on a linen that I didn't like, so I tried gessoing and toning it on the back and painting on that side instead. It was a really textured surface and I wasn't crazy about using it for a portrait. She was a great model and I would love to paint a longer painting of her.


  1. Lovely portrait! I am really enjoying your blog and seeing all these fantastic portraits.
