Rachel

This was painted on illustration board instead of canvas, canvas board etc. I wasn't sure how it would work with acrylic paints but I was very pleased with it. I didn't gesso the board (Drew Struzan typically does) so I can't varnish it or else it will warp.

On illustration board cold press 15"x 20"

  1. That's a great portrait of Rachel McAdams. From the looks of it, I'd say it's Red Eye-era McAdams (awesome movie!). Well done.

  3. That is a beautiful peice. If Rachel saw it she would want it for herself. You got her glow just right. You ever think about doing a Selena?
