Clown Johnny K
Here's a recent life painting from the Thursday afternoon session I go to.
The model is a clown called Johnny K, a friend of the artist,Mick O'Dea who runs the session.
Johnny's a lovely man and was a very good model even though this was his first time.
I thought he'd have a really hard time keeping still considering the way he was goofing around before the session, but he was really very good, especially as a standing pose is particularly difficult to hold over a long period.
This was a four hour session. With breaks that amounts to about three and a quarter hours posing.
