Callas and more practice


 This was a warm up painting that ended up taking several hours.
Love the "calla" time of the year!

More  practice on portraits.
This has too much noodling.
It needs to be simpler but I was just trying to get the main
planes of the face.
Bad hair day?

Portraits



We are presently studying figures and portraits.
As you can imagine there is a pretty steep learning curve.
Here is my attempt from yesterday's class.
The light was coming from below and she was so beautiful.
She looked like a professional model.
