Boom, Headshot

I don’t often post portraits on the blog as the commissions don’t get posted and I rarely paint models anymore. Here is a 6-shot head painted while teaching a short course in my studio.

One thing I’ve often found interesting as a portraitist is how some people are more beautiful when they move, and others just glow when they are still.

Update: Here’s another. This one was just a couple of hours.

  1. Just amazing Mr.Dalessio, very reminiscent of Sargent. If you don’t mind me asking, how many sittings did this painting take to arrive at this level of finish? I would love to see and (I’m sure I’m not the only one ) would greatly benefit from looking at some detail shots. Etherway, this is one beautifully painted head and I thank you for sharing it and safe trip to Albania!
