AP Student Portraits

Early in the spring of 2014 I made a promise to the students in my AP Studio Art class that I would paint their portrait if they completed the AP art portfolio in May. Seventeen months later I finally finished the last of these portraits. Each portrait is based on 15th and 16th century clothing styles and the color palettes used by Michelangelo and Pontormo – the exception being Saint Martha, which is based on a 16th century painting by Dutch artist Pieter Aertsen.
