Thank you!

Anonymous asked: Are these portraits from photo references? Live painting sessions? Do you sit in one session for most of these? I'd love to see a video or photos of your process. Thanks for sharing your work! Truly inspiring.

These portraits are painted from live models. The studies are from photo references. Yes one session, I like to finish the painting in one sitting. I’ll see what i can do. You’re welcome and thanks for looking! :)

Anonymous asked: Hey Eric, how many hours do you spend on each painting? And what are the sizes do you work on? Love your work! Keep painting!

Thanks. These portraits vary from 3-6 hours. This last one is 5 hours and 11x14”.
