ivbentaqiy I am looking for this teacher #NelsonShanks he doesn't know me yet but I have to study his style. Amazing portrait artist, I was told to study with him for some new techniques so now I am on a mission to find him. The technique I currently use the most is dry brush technique with oil paint. Most of my paintings are done with acrylic first as under paints and built up with the second layer being oil. Starting with mid tones to lights then to darks, and back to high lights and then back to darks for fine details and deep crevices, hair follicles and eyeballs. #ivbenart101 5h

ivbentaqiy Was able to meet talented little League Pitcher #MoneDavis today at #SocialSundays event where I painted live. She's an awesome young lady with an amazing Athletic ability and drive. I'm proud that she's a positive voice for young women and a role model that you can be whatever you want if you believe in yourself 2d

ivbentaqiy The look on Rasheed Wallace face and his Amazing mother when he received his painting. The amount of love and respect in the room was unbelievable. Another successful event and night, glad my Art played a small role in that! These are the moments that matter in being an artist! 2d

ivbentaqiy I've been blessed to have so many great male role models growing up. Thankful to be one of those kids that actually knew their father and for him to be active in my life. I also ventured out and received advice from other influential men/women and learned what things men deal with, and exactly the real responsibilities of being a man! As a man you should always make MONEY and strive for ownership in your own home and business, POWER is gained but with power comes control , strength and responsibilities. As a man you will be ridiculed, judged and constantly being watched. You will earn the RESPECT you've created for yourself by your actions not just words! 5d
