“Light and Shadow”
by Janice P. Smith

Janice P. Smith is a painter from Sierra Vista, Arizona. She received a Friends of Western Art scholarship to attend the Ray Roberts Portrait Workshop.

During the Workshop, Roberts did several demonstrations. Smith recalls, “The main teaching object was to capture what was in light and what was in shadow. Where you see two head studies, that denotes shorter time to work. The larger works indicate more time spent trying to capture a likeness and correct values.”
