4 x 4 oil on panel

I need to get more practice with my portraits so tackling Einstein was just the thing for me. Thank you Nora for this DPW Challenge

I have never painted in color from a black and white photo before. I'm glad I gave that a try.


  1. I'm so glad you took on this challenge, Cathy. You really captured the sense of mystery in his eyes. Not easy, but you did a great job!

  2. wow! Cathy, did a wonderful job on this challenge.. It's amazing!!!

  3. Cathy, It is hard to believe you painted this from a black and white photo! The skin tones, you created are amazing!

  4. My first comment never went through so I had to try again because you did such an incredible portrait here! I can't get over it.!

  5. Don't know how I missed another one, but so glad I came over and got to see this portrait, Cathy. You did a fabulous job, and it feels as if painted by someone who knew him personally!
