...are surprisingly fun to do. Painting 'Emma' was stressful, time and performance pressured and immersing, but because she was such a great first time model we both had a good time. She was so helpful and attentive I'm giving her the painting.
I had volunteered to do a demo for my class thinking that, because it was mostly interpreting and painting landscapes from photographic reference, that they would like to see me do a landscape....or at least a still life. But 'portrait' was the vote.
The people there took photos of the process and perhaps if some one of them could forward a few pics of the process I'll post them later. In lieu of that, here is a closeup. The demo took a bit more than two hours but that included model breaks and a bit of talking and explaining.
Painting classes begin again the last week of January at the Winslow Art Center. I'll also be teaching a Marker Workshop in early February....plus some other courses. Come join us....we have a lot of fun.
