hese portraits are from an ongoing series I'm working on. The concept is to paint abstract portraits of every member of my Venice High School graduating class, from their photos in the Year Book. The idea, once they're all complete, is to do a show featuring them all and to include their photos from the Year Book alongside their painted portrait. I need to get back to this project, I was having a lot of fun with it.
It was a really big class, about 800 students, so I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this one. Especially when you consider, I've already done multiple portraits of several of the students. Stay tuned on this one!
