Growth as an Artist....

First mugshot of HHG member, Karin, painted in Nov 2011.

Painted Karin's mug again, after painting 21 different mugs.
I thought you might enjoy seeing my growth or whatever we artists prefer to call it, when our technique changes over time, resulting in a different look. I prefer the word growth. I painted our HHG members, all twenty one of us, over the past six months, and I am happy with the direction my brush is moving, loose, alla prima paint strokes, better values and intensities, and best of all, a better understanding of what I am seeing. I highly recommend a mugshot exercise.


  1. You have really grown and I like the direction you've taken. You show a lot of character in your mugs. Well done!!

  2. Une certainement maturité dans le mouvement à force de travail.
    Gros bisous

  3. Wow, I should try that. Mugshot excercise really paid off. You get better and better.
