Philly Bound

This time I used burnt sienna for my underpainting. Great range of colors using thinner to pick-out. At the next workshop she'll be sitting in the same pose for another 2 hours. Giving us a chance to add color.

Anyhoo this model kept talking about music and how she's moving to Philly.
Maybe she forgot models are supposed to sit still

Coffee shop owner

I'm taking a painting class at Studio 2nd Street
One of the lessons is a burnt umber pick-out, to learn the values, and then to paint over it with color. I've been having trouble with the whole process so I went to the studios open workshop to practice.

I had alot of fun with this one, instead of my usual frustration with paint.

The model owns the coffee shop across the street. I think its a symbiotic relationship.

12X16 canvas board
2 hours ?
