Dolce in SF

26 Nov 2011 – Another painting from a photo.  Sentimental photo of me with Dolce overlooking San Francisco from Crissy Field.



Experiment – painting from a photo…

25 nov 2011 I displayed a digital photo full screen on our television and painted from across the room. I haven’t painted from a photo in about 30 years. I don’t normally like painting from a photo, but decided to experiment with it today.  I posted the painting and the photo for you to compare… It was interesting… especially this photo because my focus is really to do a series of flowers. But this one had a blurry image of Jaclyn in the background whih distracted me from just the flower…



Model Vicktor at La Grande Chaumiere


Today’s model has a nice face and a strong standing pose. Good energy. Good shapes. Although I want to draw the standing pose, I’m drawn to the face, as usual.  Over 2 sessions I played around with paint, pencil, charcoal and aqua pencil to explore his face.



I also did a couple standing poses and a painting in my book…
