Recent Gifts

A tomato oil painting for my mom, pansies in watercolor for my gran, and a framed figure sketch for my dad. Apparently I am an indentured servant. Luckily they were all well received. There's also a beach portrait for my aunt and uncle in the works, but life gets hectic- I'll post it as soon as it's done.

Patrick and Samela

We had a treat on Monday. Not only was Patrick back, which allowed me to pick up right where I left off last week (usually our models don't have such continuity in their schedules), but his girlfriend Sam accompanied him on the model stand. It was a fun challenge dealing with twice the subject of a usual session in the same blocks of time.
The one above may be my favorite, for its brevity and impact.
They did crazy stuff like this! (below)
And then they brought out swords! (above)
I love drawing.
