Painting from Life

It was an opportunity I didn't want to pass up- two models at the open figure group last week. In the midst of Christmas preparations it was great to set that all aside for a few hours. After the 5 minutes poses, we had four 20 minute poses. I used one sheet of paper and painted  with a very limited palette in acrylic. I just did one after the other. A present to myself, the sweet gift of time!

After Vuillard

Always one of my favorite paintings by Vuillard, here's my copy done with respect and humility! Even a simple painting has layers of complexity and nuance. 8x10 on canvas.

A pretty cyclamen had me searching to get the values right. White is a challenge, need I say more? This is 8x8 on a cradled panel.
