Karissa needed a cup of coffee or toothpicks to hold her eyes open, but she was a beautiful model. Her black kimono with the pink flowers was lovely next to her skin and masses of dark wavy hair.

Ricardo posed for us in the evening session at the Firehouse. The canvas and the palette in the pose were actually blank canvas panels. I blocked in a portrait and made up the palette to make the painting looked more interesting. The colors on the palette in the picture were actually a copy of the colors I used in my palette. This is an acrylic on a 18" by 24" canvas.

When I was setting up the model I was thinking of a Milton Avery painting of a young women at a desk writing a note. I had planned on doing a set up something like that. It turned out our model Lisa looked a lot like the women in the Avery painting. I added some of the other painters to the composition.
