Diana is a great artist and a great model too. I have been painting with her in the morning session at the Firehouse for more than a year. This was the third time I painted her. The painting was done with acrylic on a 18" x 24" canvas.

Drew is a great model. He is different from the usual pretty face with his strong features and wiggy hair. He kept a difficult pose, looking upward, which I'm sure was hard on his eyes.

Yesterday I went to the evening session specifically to paint Looner, whose intriguing features and hair promised an interesting experience. About twenty minutes into this portrait the model started to look like Jesus, so I went with it. The irregular halo needs work, but overall I'm happy to have had a chance to paint the savior. This is in acrylics on paper and the scale is a little larger than life.

It happened one evening we did not have a model. A gentleman walked into the shop and offered to sit for us. What a happy fit! He did a good job! This is a painting of him. I did it with acrylic on a 18"x24" canvas.
