I have several paintings to post but I can't seem to get any decent photos today. I'm posting the painting I did at Open Studio last night because this photo turned out fairly well.
This was my first time going to Open Studio and also my first time painting a live model. There was a model for a couple nights in my portrait class, but I decided to just stay with charcoal for those. I'm not at all unhappy with this since it was my first time. I might have gone a bit dark with her skin, and mixing skin color was so different in the studio than at home. I'm looking forward to giving it another try.
It was a surprise to see my portrait teacher at Open Studio also! I loved watching Ann paint Lisa also! Check out her results.
