Friday at Kat's Studio 30

I went to two sessions at Studio 30 today. I used my new/old Yarka easel. The life model was a beautiful woman named Ariel. I didn't quite finish my painting.....but maybe she'll come back to model in the future. I hope so! Happy Weekend to you! 

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Ariel, oil on 16x20 stretched canvas

(The Yarka Field Easel is made in Russia and folds down into a lightweight box)

To see what the other painters did....go HERE .

Your Russian Yarka looks cool! You are amazing with figuratives.

Good morning Celeste!
Love the portrait! Striking!
I very much enjoy "Celeste At The Easel!" Great movement, drama, and happiness! You, the artist, appear to be dancing! A very nice portrait of a very happy painter at "work-play!" Bravo!
Art on Celeste!

Looks like a very useful easel Celeste I must look online and see if I can see them over here.

Oh boy! What a nice studio space to paint in! Thank you for liking my little drawing too, Celeste. I haven't had too many comments on it but that isn't either here nor there...except that I feel like it is a case of if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all!! LOLOLOL

Anyway, Ariel is indeed a stunner and has the perfect face shape. I love how her hair follows the line of her head and accentuates that facial shape. Oh to be able to paint like you do!!

We often learn as much from an unfinished piece as one that is done.

That i is unfinished makes it all the better. How do you get so much done? It looks a lot like her.

Where do I find a Yark easel? Do you recommend?

I made my own pochade box, but yours looks so much better. Lovely portrait. Strong as always.

A really wonderful portrait--love the nose. I was going to say "striking" but that adjective was already taken.
