The Scotsman -sold
oil on linen panel 12x9 inches
private collection Rancho Cucamonga, CA
On Thursday I had the opportunity to paint from the live model with a group at the Chaffey Community Art Association gallery. Our model had never posed before, and he did a fabulous job. He looked so authentic! I'm sure it was his Scottish lineage. Usually I paint only the head, but I couldn't resist the beautiful shirt with its leather laces. Now the scary part was to get the face readable on a small scale. Oh no...here I go again! (The little girl's face in previous painting!) As it turns out, I'm happy with the painting but truthfully, the best part was painting with friends.
