Canyon Road Paint Out X


One of my favorite artists is Nacona Burgess (standing here in front of his painting). He is Comanche from Lawton Oklahoma but has lived in many place including Santa Fe. He is the great-great gandson of Chief Quanah Parker. You can read more about him and see more of his work here.

Interesting. Not painting buildings and such... Why not leave this for the studio and paint 'live'?

It is so interesting to see the model next to the realization, it gives a hint about the artist's skillfulness.

You must have had a good conversation with him to gather all the information. Portrait is outstanding.
