Quin Sweetman is an oil painter--who also just happens to be a part time model. I got to paint her today in our life painting session. It is different to paint someone who can "talk shop" with you during the breaks. I liked the way the studio lamp was directed onto her chin...and how the straw hat helped complete the sunshine fantasy.
