Ilana - Portrait


Howdy, last night, my friend and fellow illustrator Ilana Kohn came over and was nice enough to sit for a quick oil portrait. It's so difficult to photograph oil paintings without a zillion little highlights, so I spent a little time in Photoshop taking a bunch of them out... still not perfect though!

oil on panel, 9x12" detail

Great color in this portrait. It's refreshing to see some more of your traditional work.

Hey Frank,
I found your blog through my friends (rusty zimmerman) blog. I really dig your work man, a lot.

All the Best,
Frank Gonzales

Frank, this is really lovely.
I think I saw you at the Society of Illustrators show, but I wasn't sure what you look like so I didn't approach to say 'hello.' Were you wearing a Tshirt?
