Mark Taber

Busy month here, but while I've got a minute, here is another portrait from the weekly model session I attend. This is painist, Mark Taber, and he was a lot of fun to paint.
I found some videos of Mark playing with a few bands on youtube. I'm not sure what year this was filmed, but here is a video of Mark playing with the Ken Lyon & Tombstone Blues Band, Mark's solo begins at about the 1:35 minute mark. And here is a write up of Mark in the Providence Phoenix.

Oil, 20 x 16 inches


  1. I really like your art,the colors you use and the you have a new supporter!

  2. Really digging your new portraits Rob! What surface are you painting on? It looks smoother than canvas!

  3. Thanks Dipintoma and Ryan! It's an MDF panel Ryan, covered in acrylic gesso, applied with a roller.

  4. Thanks! I'll have to try MDF out. What thickness are you working with? Also paint roller seems like a good idea I've been gessoing canvas with a large brush and it take a while to get a good coat!

  5. Thank Rob, I'm going to try it out and report back :D
