Friday at Kat Sowa's-- March 9, 2012

I met up with the North Portland Painters today at Kat Sowa's studio for a life painting session. Our model was fellow painter Za Vue's nephew (I forgot to get his name). He did a perfect job, staying still as a rock. To see what everyone else did, go HERE.

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

Wow! Your portrait is absolutely amazing. I still haven't the courage to tackle portraits or the figure. One my favorites of yours!

How do you do this??? A beautiful portrait with deceptively few strokes? Amazing work, Celeste! And thank you so much for the link to silver oil painting!

This is very nice. Not as laborious as mine. You are way ahead of my game Celeste--and I bet you're younger too. Beautiful work as always.

I like the little cool dash on left of his forehead. Good skin tones all around. Nice work. I thought this model was great!
