Alla Prima Portrait: Aubrey (Oil, 21 x 15)
Today, at Punta Gorda VAC Portrait Studio, the model's name was Aubrey. It was the first time I painted Aubrey. She was very nice to dressed herself in a turn-of-the-century English lady's riding outfit. She even brought a horse whip with her. I did only a portrait instead of full figure. I would have painted a full-length figure if she had not been sitting in the high chair. In spite of my efforts before, I believe it is difficult to make changes to the way models are arranged. Besides myself, it seems everyone is satisfied with the same pose on high chair, year in and year out.
