Acrylic on 10x8 Gallery Wrap Canvas

 I went to a painting from live model class this morning and loved it! I opted to work on the portrait only instead of the whole figure. So much fun, I will definitely try to go when I can! I also did some more sketching:


  1. There's a lovely Modigliani feel about this portrait!! You've captured her features,especially the lips so beautifully! Your sketches show the tonal values which is an excellant learning tool and fun to look at too.

  2. I've taken life drawing classes but never painting from life. I can't imagine anything that would be more difficult. Or more rewarding. And you did so well, Karen! I really love the skin tones you achieved on Sarah. Great work!

  3. Thank you Azra and Darla, it really was very exciting and as you said Darla, very rewarding. I did a quick sketch to start with to get my values and then went into the painting. It really feels great when you get to the point where you know the portrait is going to work!
