This was a fun piece for me to paint. I set this still life up to try and get some interaction between the melon and the flower. Not sure if that works or helps but I really enjoyed painting it. This was about 2 1/2 hour painting.

This was a new model the folks at the Marin Art School found. She has great posture, could hold a pose, beautiful & great costume. I booked her for my following Head and Figure painting classes I teach on Thursdays. She told me during my class that this painting was the first time she posed for artists. I have been teaching for many years and I assumed she was a pro with years of experience. Some people are just meant to model, at least for a little while. This was a 3 hour pose.

This was a 20 minute sketch from a model. I liked the abstract quality to it. I might try and do a large painting based on it. It was fun designing the shapes.

I painted this with some friends at the Marin Art School. They hire models once in a while when there are no classes going on. This is the time the folks running the school get a chance to paint the model uninterupted. They invite me down once in a while and this was the first time. There are always a good, small group of people painting on these days. This was a 3 hour painting.
