Life painting session


Our model today was "styled" to look Native American. The pose was complex and I tried to just concentrate on simple shapes. I hope she'll come back and model for us again.

Graceful exposure... J'aime la pose gracieuse qu'avait pris votre modèle. Le choix de vos couleurs sont en harmonie avec sa sensualité, sa douceur et sa nonchalance. Agréable à l'oeil...

You, my dear, are the Energizer Bunny of painting... You keep going, and going, and going... Keep up the great work! I especially like the study of your model's face. The splash of yellow to accentuate her face is inspired.

All of your work just touches me at a deeper level beyond aesthetic, Celeste. I'm not sure how to put it into words...Maybe it is a bit of mental connection between you and I, maybe it is your style with the brushes...but always does the soul stir. Another fabulous piece!

Both sketches are really good! Nice job with the gesture in the 2nd pose. Not always easy to catch.

As always, really wonderful work! Your dedication to painting is great and the results show how hard you've worked.
