Monday


I participated in a private life painting session today. Our model was turned away from us. I enjoyed trying to describe his back in paint.

Oh it's gorgeous! The lines of the figure and the colors in between - well done again Celeste! I love this one.

You have captured the strength and lovely line of his back.

You are so gutsy, Celeste. I like that. Figures are up there on the challenge meter. Very nice job. Your commitment to your art is so motivating. Candace.

Wonderful--I love the shape under his right arm.

Been a while since I have seen such a grand view. The male torso from the back has always been a fav of mine.
Love your skin colors too.
