Monday, life session

I painted this today in a life-model session. Usually, I am shoulder-to-shoulder in a group of 10 -12 other painters, but today it was just two painters and our model. Super-pleasant and peaceful ....the time just flew by.

Lol, it can get crowded sometimes doing live sessions. Just two seems like you had a lot of room for sure.
Nice portrait Celeste.

Oh wow! This is amazing and I love how you "seem" to do portraits with few brushstrokes. To me you are a master.

Great color and use of light and shadow. xo Jenny

She is lovely! Great job in getting the light. Your brush strokes are loose and I like seeing them.

Vibrant, interesting - very beautiful portrait. How long did you have to do this? What wild goose chase did you send all those other artists on? ;)
