Bill has been working on a series of Civil War paintings. There was one painting in particular, however, he wasn’t satisfied with and decided the face needed to be redone. Since my husband, Bryan, has the gaunt and rugged look Bill was searching for, he asked Bryan to pose for a mini photo shoot on Friday.
Here you can see the original reference on the computer screen.
I asked Bill if I could take a couple of photos of his gorgeous studio. Here is a collection of some of his paintings over the years.
Bill has a vast collection of props and war artifacts and reproductions to peruse. He often dons one of the hats, as seen on the mantel, while he paints.
When the photo shoot was over, Bill and Bryan studied the photos.
The photos were acceptable, but they would have been brilliant if Bryan had incorporated Blue Steel.
I’ll be sure to post the painting when it is complete! In the meantime, Bryan will be opening Utah’s own Center For Children Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too. The core of the curriculum will be teaching that there is more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking.
