Friday!

I painted with the North Portland Painters at Kat Sowa's Studio in Cathedral Park today.  Our model had a look like Royalty. I started out painting the entire figure (she wore a fantastic dress)...but I wasn't happy with the panel sizes I had with me. I switched gears and did a portrait. To see what the other artists painted, go HERE.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, M, oil on 12x16 canvas panel

Beautiful portrait Celeste. She is elegant. I actually liked all the paintings in their unfinished state and would leave some that way. Your group is loaded with talent. You're very fortunate.

Absolutely marvelous, Celeste! I love how you handled this piece. She has a bit of a Katherine Heigl look to her too. Beautiful!

I love looking at a week in the life of Celeste Bergin. (I've been looking in all week, of course). Sunday - I was inspired by Henry Miller's words - watched it twice. Loved Monday's painting - you've been very good for a long time evidently. :) Monday was graceful, delicate (Pippa without clothes - lol). Tuesday - Robert Frost's words come to life. Thursday - love the clarity of it, with so few colors - you are a master of values. And Friday - love the looseness of it, and she is regal, you are right. It was fun looking at what the other artists did too.
