Two Portrait Studies
Here are a couple of paintings from the life room.
In both cases I was not too thrilled by the general pose so I went for a portrait study.
John is a model who is new to me. I loved the almost biblical look that his long hair lends him, and he is really good at holding his pose over a long period.
On the other hand, I have painted Tony many times.
Although he is extremely professional, on this occasion he was having difficulty keeping his eyes open, but his body never moved a jot. I tried to capture that sleepy look in this one hour study.
