This is a class project. Scroll down and you can see my class working on " our girl." Everyone got a chance to choose a background, hair style and really anything else. We started with a photo of a pretty young woman and added and subtracted till we each got what we wanted. I like to use a photo as a jumping off point for my students so that I can teach them a method to create a portrait. This one was done in the style of the old masters. It is on Ebay auction this week. To check out my auction click here.

Spring Creek is one of my favorite places to visit. I love to go with a good book or two, lots of snacks, a float, and a blank canvas or two. Last week I was looking for a master work to jump start my class and came across a lovely painting by the artist Andres Zorn. I borrowed one of his figures, changed her up a bit, threw in one of my favorite models and created a couple other bathers. The next best thing to being there is painting from sketches and photos of the peaceful creek. Anyways this one is headed off to Oklahoma City for a fundraiser unless it sells first on Ebay.

I have been playing with an idea today. I really liked this painting by Andres Zorn and decided to borrow a figure from him and change it a little and add a few of my own from sessions with a model. Not quite finished but enjoying the process and playing with the images.
