Alla Prima Portrait: Nicole (Acrylic 20 x 16)

It was VAC's Portrait Studio Day today. The model we had for the session was Nicole. I don't remember I painted her before, but the rest of the group said they did. Maybe I was not there when she sat for us before. Anyway, Nicole was a very professional model. She was all dressed in red with a beautiful headdress and a colorful boa, that made it more fun to paint. I am really tired of painting those who simply come and sit on the high chair as if they were coming to a photographer's studio to have an ID picture taken.

Interestingly, not to my acknowledgment,  Cathy took a picture of me painting her and sent it to me after the session. So I added the picture as follows:



    1. this is a picture of you painting her.

  2. Thank you very much for this picture. I didn't know you took it then.

  3. you can now have it to remind you of all the hours you worked painting all the different models we had on Thursday mornings
