Day 147

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

Well, here it is. The first of the 2012 Hilton Head Gang mugshots. None other than the ringleader, Karin Jurick herself. This was a lot of fun to paint, and I learn so much doing these little mugshots. Can't wait to paint the rest of the gang!!


  1. Excellent job! Wonderful capture of Karin (although we know this expression is rare on her!)

    1. Thanks, Terri! Yes, glad this expression is rare.

  2. Good job, Kat. Love the color you chose to contrast with the skin tones.

  3. Excellent! I also love the skin tones and her whole attitude! Love it!

  4. Thanks, ladies! I remembered what she said at the workshop and used more reds in the skin. I had intended to use bright orange for the background color, but when I put down the turquoise, it looked really good.

  5. Good one! These mug shots are a blast to do. I'm glad y'all are doing them again and I can't wait to see more. I like the turquoise in her hair and skin, too. Well done!!

  6. Great descriptive title, too. Hard to believe that Karen was so intense even though I know she must have focus to accomplish what she has done. This is a fabulous painting.
