week 23 of The Stuffy Collection

Mr Spin’s Portrait for week 23 of the stuffy collection was painted during my workshop this weekend with Landon Mackenzie.I meet some very inspiring artist and felt very fortunate to have this opportunity to paint under the influence and inspiration of Landon Mackenzie and have her critique my work and give me guidance to move forward with my mission. To see more of this collection please see The Stuffy Collection on my website.

Stewies Portrait

Stewies Portrait

For this portrait i decided to try an abstract combined with a miniature .Using the colours from Stewies photo shoot that you can see more of on The Stuffy Collection Page . Stewie was a very stubborn model and need some reinforcing of his obligation of being part of the series hence the limp and black eye.(of course it’s meant to be a joke as Stewie has a big personality).
