Ryan on the Coffee Plantation

Idea: Maybe I need to do a series of people on horses. Or maybe I only paint my mentors on horseback. But when Ryan posted a picture of himself riding a horse on a coffee plantation in Colombia, as a response to my portrait of John on horseback, I knew I couldn’t resist! I was very nervous because this is my very first time painting Ryan. Portraits are tough, and not only is Ryan very very handsome – with quite an impressive Instagram account too – but also he doesn’t cover his face with sunglasses like John does. Sunglasses make portraits so much easier… Anyway, for a first try I’m happy, and it was fun to do this over Facebook Live.

What else is new? I’m seriously thinking about a sequel to Miss Vulpe, and also possibly a new cover.
