Today I completed my demonstration of Megan. I followed the same procedure as the previous day’s demo, but focused on smaller and more subtle nuanced shapes and transitions. I’m very happy with the way it came out and would have loved to keep working on it. When Megan came down from the model stand, after her next to last sitting, she looked and the painting, gasped and then hugged me. It was very touching. I’ve never had anything like that happen before.
Below are the progressive steps today’s journey took, followed by a few details. Unfortunately, there is some glare on these last images. I’ll try to get a better shot of the finished painting and post it soon.
My workshop schedule for this year will be complete come tomorrow. For those interested, my continuing education classes at the School of Visual Arts begin in mid-September. Should be fun.
Until next time…
