Richard, Venice Model

Diane Mannion, Richard,Venice Model, 10x8" oil

      A favorite way to spend Friday afternoon is painting at the Venice Art Center Portrait Studio.  Not only are the artists friendly and talented but the paintings produced in two and a half hours are incredible!  Painting from a live model is great training for any other subject.   Drawing skills are sharpened, portraits leave little leeway for mistakes.

Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine.  Here's a copy of the ad:
