I used this photo for reference for this portrait of Richlin Ryan. It was taken back in 2018 during a show I had in Ormond Beach, FL.
Richlin & Weldon Ryan are both Central Florida artists and have been big supporters of mine since I came back into painting back in 2016. I got inspired to paint this portrait of Richlin this past summer after watching a presentation she did at the Fall Festival of the Arts in De Land, FL.

Richlin creates beautiful high contrast black and white portraits that are colored with tissue paper. So I incorporated tissue paper in the background of this painting because its one of the techniques that Richlin uses in her paintings. It was a lot of fun painting this portrait.
