Though I don’t always make a sketch before making a painting, I did so with Bettie. The drawing appears in this blog post, which also explains the project that led to me painting Bettie, and you can see the full making of the painting here. For more about Bettie and my encounter with her, check out this blog post.

The other portraits from this same project are of Allyson, Cynthia, Deloris, Heather, Jeff, Kimberly, Lidia, Rubynell, Sanchioni, Sarita, and Smiley.
