My model, Ishin, was exceptionally beautiful and interesting to paint.
Here I am pretty far into the demo. I only had a total of 50 minutes to work on it there, so I finished it in my studio.
Yesterday I went down to Alexandria, VA to give a talk and oil-painting demonstration at the Belle Haven Country Club. It was actually just the first part of an art-filled day for the participants, who then went on to tour the studios of several artists in the neighborhood.
I had a lot of fun. The event was so well organized and yet the atmosphere was relaxed. I met lots of great people, and I even got to visit for a while with my friend and fellow artist, Diana Cobb Ansley, whose studio was on the tour.
