Portrait Painting Class, Week 5.

From week 5 of my painting class... painted from a live model... Nicole (oil on canvas, 9x12")....

Using a brush and transparent maroon paint thinned with turpentine, I began by drawing the portrait and doing a rough two value layout. I was relatively pleased with how the drawing turned out (I wish I had a photo of it). My instructor, Meadow, painted the lower left part of the face (cheek to the bridge of the nose). It is amazing to see the subtleties she brings to the portrait. All the rest is me.
