12" x 16" oil painting on canvas board
I've been getting into the life drawing/sketching club at Maitland Art Center the last few weeks. Last time I was there, I met a really talented artist who is also a roofer and he encouraged me to try out Crealde's open studio on Friday. I'm interested in refining my technique in portraiture and he said the model there holds the pose for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours so it's worth it to get out the paints. I concentrated on the face and, even though it leaves something to be desired (my technique, not her face LOL), I'm anxious to get back at it in the coming new year.
