I used an underpainting with this version of Sonia. It let me get to an almost finished place quickly but then I kept working and had to undue a lot of things. The end result has many things I like however in the brushwork. It is a 20 by 20 acrylic. Karen

The only place left to set up was a profile I new would be difficult. I liked the pose the tension in the position as she looked into the room. It wasn't until I took out more detail from her face that it started to work. I may do some more work in the studio because I can't be there next week. It is an 20 by 24 acrylic on canvas.

After the Firehouse received a dark new coat of paint, it felt like a cave. I decided that since I could not see his face that clearly, that I would make the street the center of attention. I finished this 20 x 20" rather quickly because I did not have a lot of anatomy to deal with.

I had a hard time with Bob. The first one I did I painted out later. This time the light was drastically different because the room had been painted a too dark color and the lights have not been installed. However the moody feel allowed me a different approach and it is a little better than the last one. It is a 24 by 24 acrylic. Karen
