Portrait Art – Drawing of my Wife!

Here is a portrait drawing that I’m currently working on of my wife Brigitta:

Grandmother Portrait Painting – “Abue”

A few weeks ago I finished this oil portrait painting of my wife Brigitta’s maternal Nicaraguan grandmother (or ‘abuela’, in Spanish). Her name was Rafaela Corrales Toruño, and Brigitta simply called her “Abue.” Abue had five children, three of which emigrated from Nicaragua to the U.S. in the 1970’s. Abue also came to the U.S.Continue reading “Grandmother Portrait Painting – “Abue””

Teddy the Dog – Pet Portrait Painting

I recently finished this dog portrait painting in time for my friend to pick it up tonight and surprise his girlfriend with it! It’s painted on a gallery-stretched linen canvas – linen is the best for portrait paintings! For a custom pet portrait painting, see here or contact me at info@davewhitepaintings.com!

Happy Dance Art – Red Acrylic Painting

This dance painting is to express the joy of creative movement! This acrylic painting measures 5″ x 5″ and is painted on a flat Gessobord Panel.

Whitewashed Mediterranean Oil Painting

Walking to the beach in the quaint village of Sao Rafael, Portugal, I came across this flowering tree growing alongside a whitewashed wall, the kind ubiquitous all over the Mediterranean region:    

Sunny Red Balcony – Spanish Painting

I’d been thinking I wanted to paint something with a pop of red color in it. So I went through some photos I have, and came across one that I took in Ibiza, Spain. The shutter and door colors in the original photo are green, so I decided to switch them to red in theContinue reading “Sunny Red Balcony – Spanish Painting”

Portugal Sea View Landscape Oil Painting

Sao Rafael is a small village in the southern, coastal Algarve province of Portugal. There’s a nice seafood restaurant next to a small beach, and there are many cliffs to explore around. This house is one of the few in the area that are dotted along the beautiful coastline! 8″ in height by 10″ inContinue reading “Portugal Sea View Landscape Oil Painting”
