Lighting Different

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on April 26, 2017 in Paintings, Portrait |

Working on using thicker paint. I will eventually get to nice strokes and heavy application. It is a relatively brief exercise. Wish I could get it under a couple hours of painting time. I guess I take breaks. I would love to make the same painting in 25 or 35 minutes. I am just oddly […]

Portrait Group

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on March 16, 2014 in Paintings, Portrait, Sketches |

Another day with the portrait group. We meet at Ray Vinella’s place. It is a nice group to spend a few hours with. Our model had a difficult morning but performed like a trooper. She was rock steady and was a pleasure to paint. Her mother is also a painter and stopped over to visit […]

Finally got myself back to the Taos Portraits Artists group. It was a full house. Lots of new faces! We also had a great model, Sophie, from Taos Ski Valley. Actually, she just works at the ski valley.

  Finally had an opportunity to return to the portrait society painting group on Saturday. It was a Ray Vinella’s studio in Taos. It was great to meet him for a moment. The subject was Mae Won. She was amazingly beautiful.

Rose Leon visits

A friend of mine stopped over. Rose Leon is such a calm, sweet, and positive person. Hopefully you get a bit of a sense of that from the drawing. It was a quick thing done on the iPad.

Working with Paper

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on March 23, 2013 in Portrait |

At the moment I am trying to work out some images that involve paper, patterns, and the figure. Before I invite friends over to model, I should probably work out what I really want to do. This is just an early step in that direction. I am probably going to have to go back into […]

Santana Sketch

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on March 12, 2013 in Portrait, Sketches |

The UNM Taos library has had some great people to work with. Santana is one of them. I felt I needed to push something out before bed. I had a photo of Santana and put it up on my computer screen to sketch. This is just another iPad squiggle fest.

Back Spring

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on March 11, 2013 in Journal, Paintings, Portrait |

Sunday was a lazy day. I really only accomplished a little laundry and this slight image. Oh, I did make up a model release form and I did run into a friend that I have been dying to work with. She is gorgeous and will be a great subject for a few actual paintings. The […]

Kenyon Portrait

I finally made it to the Taos Society of Portrait Artists group slightly early. I was actually able to set up my stuff before the crowd arrived. Unfortunately, I changed my mind about where I wanted to be and had to find a place next to the glaring front door and a bit back. It […]

Sketching on the iPad

Posted by Enrico Trujillo on February 3, 2013 in Portrait, Sketches, Uncategorized |

Spent a few minutes sketching while having tea this morning. I found a group of photos I had gathered and decided to poke something out on my iPad. Across from me was a group of older ladies laughing about their day. It was quiet and there wasn’t really anyone else in the space except for […]
