Tuesday's Model Session

Every Tuesday night we are thrilled to have the opportunity to paint from a live model, sometimes clothed, other times not. I call this painting The Red Dress. I tried to pose her in such a way that would be different from what we are used to. I thought about the pose, the lighting and the composition all day long. Then when I arrived at the studio I had sorted out what I wanted and didn't want and went straight to work. I like the way this painting turned out and I learned that it pays for me to do my home work. I tried to make all her edges soft which I had decided upon way back at work. Now I know NOT to arrive at the studio "cold" It really helps me.
