(Things that are important to you) "Personal growth, and knowing that I am always progressing in my craft. Hope for a bright future."
I really wanted this painting to turn out well because Yupari was a full time student at Studio Incamminati at the time, in one of my classes, and a really good artist! I started on a white canvas, which I don't usually do, and rubbed an imprimatura layer of burnt sienna on the canvas and started by wiping out the light masses. I had to start over because I didn't like my first attempt, but its easy to wipe the imprimatura back down. Fortunately, it turned out well in the end. I loved painting his glasses. We all miss you Yupari!
