Dennis

Diane Mannion, DENNIS, 10x8" oil
      Artists in the Venice Portrait Studio at VAC were thrilled today to have a handsome model with lots of character pose for us in his golf hat!  My favorite way to spend a rainy Friday afternoon painting with artist friends.  
      This painting was first sketched in burnt umber with a small brush.  Then while the model took his break, I mixed up piles of flesh tones, shirt, and background colors.  The session was two and a half hours, but excluding breaks... only about two hours to paint.  There's never enough time!

You did very well in two hours painting time! He looks like quite a character...
