Portraits

I'm taking a portrait drawing class in Bellevue college; and I've really been in the mood to do portraits lately. I've been offering to do portraits of my friends, with the condition that: a.) I will take their picture, b.) I'll post online whatever I painted, good or bad. In exchange, I will give them the portrait. Surprisingly few people took me up on the offer! Danko, my colleague, was brave enough to give it a go though:

As was my college buddy Glenn:

I did this of my sister Marion without asking for permission. I figure maybe my sister will be more forgiving if it came out too awful.

Each painting has some technical flaws, but I feel I've gotten better at them.

Edit: Oh, and finally a self portrait, I am never hesitant to give myself permission to paint myself!
