Soriba - about 20 some hours


Soriba on an 8 x 10 gesso panel that I re-gessoed with an additional 3 layers and sanded to lose some of the tooth.  This was done more in an alla-prima manner than typical at ARS.  Really enjoyed this painting and am happy with the results!

Here is on the first day of block in the shadows (and some dark light) after transferring a quick drawing to my panel.




One afternoon drawing of Cara - about 2 hours on Canson recycled Bristol ( vellum)..  I was enjoying the lights and shadow shapes though I did not get her as young and carefree as she really is..


Quick drawing of Randy - our final long-pose painting model..  ( painting in-progress!!!)..  about an hour and a little..

A quick 10 min gesture of Cara that I really liked!  Newsprint 18 x 24" and Conte Pierre Noire crayon ( pencil)
