Life painting session --Eric


I painted with the North Portland Painters at Kat Sowa's Studio in Cathedral Park today.  Our model looked like he could be a composer.... or a "squire" from yesteryear. I opted to use just raw umber and white, like I did last Monday. To see what the others did, go HERE.

Very different approaches--all of them done by seasoned painters. Interesting. What possessed Janet to make him a red headed curly top? Your rendition reminded me of Errol Flynn in some swashbuckling, sword fighting movie.
