Portrait Sketch - Brandon

10" x 8" Oil on Canvas

Brandon and his brother Taylor play for Northwest High School’s Varsity Viking Lacrosse team in Greensboro, North Carolina. Last year the Vikings won the state championship! These boys are our grand nephews and we are so proud of them! They set the bar high for their peers as fine young men who excel at any endeavor they attempt. The serious expression on Brandon’s face as he prepared for a practice session begged to be painted! I enjoyed working within the face grid and playing with various red hues in the helmet and clothing. Soon I hope to paint Taylor with one of the horses he enjoys so much.
