Lady, 10x8" oil
Painted from model at the Venice Portrait Studio, VAC. Brought my camera along and took photos each time the model took a break. The photos below look a lot lighter because of the working lights in the portrait studio room. The finished sketch above was scanned into my computer and looks darker, but is closer to the "real colors." Anyway, here's a peek at my process (struggle).
Rapid block in after first pose.
After second pose.
And finished after fifth pose. Really like how it looks after the 4th, and wish my colors were actually that bright in the finish.
