Day 151

Mugshot: Laurie, 4 x 4 inch oil on panel
© 2012 Kathleen Coy

The 2nd in the 2012 Hilton Head Gang mugshots is Laurie. Karin Jurick told us at her workshop that we could really push bright colors in these little 4 x 4 inch paintings, (where they would be obnoxious in a larger format), so I dove right in with some bright orange to compliment Laurie's blue eyes. I like it!


  1. The blue with the orange is fantastic! Well done!

  2. I don't know Laurie, but I'd bet money that she looks like little portrait! Great loose, expressive strokes while maintaining realism!

  3. You caught Laurie - on a VERY bad day. She's such a fun and happy person, it's strange to see that look on her face.
    Great mug shot!
