This is a color version of the previous painting. I really tried to stick to the values I created in the previous painting. Improving the values where I thought it would help.

Quick Sketch of Friend


This was a 20 minute sketch of another painter who is a friend of mine. It's 5 1/2" x 7". Sometimes a few of us get together and pose for each other for 20 minutes. Then the next person switches from painting to model for another 20 minutes. And you just keep rotating through. It's a great way to be able to paint the figure from life and not spend a small fortune on models.

Sangha during model break

This is Sangha, Carole's trusted companion. Carole and I share a studio with another talented artist. While the model took a break Sangha hopped onto the stage and posed for us. I have been wanting to try to paint him but I didn't think he would hold still long enough. In this case Wendy, a painting friend, held out a treat for him so he would hold the pose for a few minutes.
