Chris and Gene were the high bidders on a portrait I donated to the auction at the All Love All Woodstock benefit for Constance McMillen & The ACLU. They wanted the location to be their beautiful shade garden in Willow, NY. They had many specific species of plants that needed to be represented: oakleaf hydrangea, fiddle head ferns, hosta, red cutleaf maple, and astilbe to name a few. I was super excited to do this portrait since I love drawing dudes and plants and I love clients that give me lots of specific reference material and direction.
Here's the sketch:
The final art:
"We loved working with Jason. He truly captured our relationship. His unique and fun style resulted in a beautiful (and flattering!) image. We are so pleased with portrait!"
