Using a Model

We hired a model for our Tuesday gathering at  
Salty Dog Studio this week!  
I wanted to explore painting the figure, 
using the same method I teach in my 
One Hour Painting workshops.  
The idea is to focus on just the big shapes of light and shadow. 
And never go back over a brush stroke! 

Darcy was a terrific model! 

 Here are a few samples from our twenty minute studies. 
Pretty cool! 

We all agreed that getting the right proportion is key 
when painting like this. 
Once you get that down, you can just have fun! 


  1. They all look great! Wonderful exercise.

  2. Love these! Very strongly seen and painted!
