Another try at Samantha
Our lovely (I would not have guessed) 15 year old Samantha modeled for the last time Saturday. This is a small 12" x 9" painting where I focused more on getting the gesture than her face. It was quite a bit easier than trying to do a larger head as i did the first time. Some of the people who attend our weekly portrait group are unable to stand so they sit and they are not willing to move in close so the artists who stand and draw or paint often don't have a good view of the model. I choose to stand most of the time because I don't like looking up the model's nose. Not so attractive. lol
