A new start of a new painting today, model Danielle. I have two more Mondays to finish this…


My current model Justin. An actor, an athlete, ex air force. And a very nice but intense person. I had a lot of fun painting him, I was very unhappy after the first session, but I am happy with it today after my second session. Now I just need to work on the background and Continue Reading

Thumb Butte, Day 13, 30 in 30

After the figure painting session this morning, I actually also did a plein air (phew!), I am behind and I need to catch up. So here are the efforts… I am happy with it overall. I feel like I got a teeny bit closer to the look and feel that I am after in my Continue Reading
