Thursday are my day to paint portraits from life — and because of that one of my most favorite days! I paint with three other artist friends and share a model. Three hour sessions – 20 minutes of posing and 5 minutes of break for three hours. Today we painted Theresa — one of my favorite models. She’s great at holding a pose and has a beautiful, regal face.
I used my Zorn palette again. I like this limited palette since we arenon a tight time frame. It gives some good fleshtones, although I waver about incorporating more transparent colors. So I tend to go back and forth between palette choices.
Today some of my stress is finally going to be relieved because the health insurance company finally approved some of the tests for my husband. Yay! So grateful!! Hopefully these tests will tell us why he’s been in an out of pain everyday for over three months!
Tomorrow I’ll go back to my knife and still lifes or maybe plein air. But Day 19 is complete!!!
All the best to you and yours!
