© 2009 Steve Penberthy lives! Sorry I haven't posted in a while; life and work has a way of getting in the way of making art for a while, and that has certainly been the case this spring...

This is a portrait of my brother that I painted from a photo from a recent vacation. I chose this pose because there was a strong side light and it allowed me to practice more on getting more light into my paintings, something at which I've been trying to get better.
