Diane Russell

For as long as I can remember, I have been painting and drawing people. I love the challenge of being a representational artist, and bringing to life a moment in time. To express my love of music, I often paint musicians (from my own photos, so you can find me with my camera right in front of the stage). My photos are a starting point, and using this as reference, I create my oil paintings and charcoal drawings. My goal with each of my portraits is always the same, to go beyond features to presence. When my portrait begins to breathe, then I know it is finished. Most of my paintings are also available as prints, and they are sold with permission from the musicians. My drawings are one of a kind, and no prints are made. All are available on my website, and I am always available for portrait commissions!
