Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. Spring is here; the trees are all leafing out quite nicely. Before much longer my back yard will be in deep shade and be a wonderful retreat.Here’s something I don’t get to do that often: a double portrait. These guys are best friends and apparently love to pose together. When I get to do a double portrait I usually have to use two photos and meld them together. In this case, this is actually how these guys were in the reference photo. Turned out to be a nice setting. They were fun to paint. Thanks to my client for the opportunity to paint them. Let me know if I can help you. Thanks and enjoy.
