Well, at our Sunday portrait session at the Don Valley Art Club, a fellow artist wore this lovely scarf over her head. I intended to paint it however, since each sitting is only 25 minutes, I didn't get to it in time. Now I'm not sure if I should paint it. I love the painting as it is. Then again, the scarf was quite beautiful and I have a photo to work. But, it's never the same as from life. Hmmm. Thoughts?
Yesterday's model was just lovely. It was our first week back in the new year and it was a great way to kick things off. Here are a few details of her portrait and hair. Hair is tricky! Big brush, confident strokes and leave it alone! ; )
When I saw this face I knew I had to paint him. I really enjoyed painting his green yellow eyes and all of that mane. I didn't realize that the farther back the mane goes, the darker it gets. Such a beautiful animal. Ferocious, yet such a warm likeable face.
