I love the colors in the gladioli ... and finally pleased with the way my painting, "Elizabeth" on the table on the left is depicted. Challenging!!!
Portrait Class Today
It was a small class -- and Jamie, the intern from Germany, was our model. She was wonderful. If I ever get a chance (doubtful), I'd show you the quick warm-up sketches created from some of her fun poses this morning.
Instead, you get to see a little more developed sketch from the long pose she'll repeat for two more classes.
I hope to see you at Artfest this coming Sunday (October 14, 2012).
