Life vs. Photos

We all know that painting "from life" is the best way 
to really "see" your subject. 
I'm really excited about painting the figure from life after the workshop, 
but rarely have anyone around to model for me.
 So, I did this from an image I took of a model we had at the workshop. 
Red Sox fan 
8 x 8 

Look how stiff and overworked that is 
compared to this quick 20 minute study I did outside from life.

That kind of says it all. 

I've got a model coming for my class on Tuesday! 
Can't wait.  


  1. Your paintings are beautiful. I wish I had talent like that. Found your blog by accident. Enjoyed my visit.
