One Helluva Party & Red Sweater

Last night I went to another figure session with Sarah. Our model had some mega dreadlocks, and a fuzzy red sweater. About an hour into the 3-hour pose I started over. I decided on the second try to experiment with wilder colors in shadows. The part I'm happiest with is the suggestion of a hand. I find I spend about 2/3 of the time on the face and 1/3 on the rest (ha! - just read that was Sarah's experience as well)!

And below is the belated group photo of last week's Sedona kids. It was a really fun group!

Carol, I've never met Karin Jurick, only seen pictures of her but, from what I've seen, your painting of the woman with dreads, in the red sweater with looks strikingly like her. Anyone else notice that?

I love the colors in the still life. It is definitely a festive painting

Hi Carol! I am loving watching you and Sarah paint together... always fascinating to see the same subject/same time rendered by different artists. Both great! Austin misses you but is so glad you are settled and doing well! Happy Thanksgiving, xoxo
