The Two Gayles
2007
Oil On Canvas
30"x24"


This is the first of my "Double" series....I want to explore identity, the notion of doubles, doppelgangers, twins, or other facets of our personalities that could be represented like this on canvas.

She is so tired! I like your pictures telling us about everyday life, they are familiar but impressive!

hi! I really like this painting! I'm into drawing/painting people realistically...just a question though, do you work from any type of reference photos? I'm trying to do realistic art without looking at photos because my teachers always tell me it's technically plagiarism if it's not my own photos (I can only find good pics in magazines) : ( I guess I'm not creative or something because it's really hard for me to paint/draw people out there without looking at them or having a photo...do you have any tips?

Using photos is a great way to learn and get used to drawing people, it helps you to see how everything fits and proportions etc. After a while you'll start finding it easier and easier to draw people from your mind because you'll know how they should look. It will be like looking at a photo inside your head.
