Portrait and Figure Studio, November 3
Here is the model.
6 inches by 8 inches...watercolor
I painted only this small portrait because I arrived late at the session and had to leave early. I have learned even an hour of painting from a live model is better than none.
Below is the equipment I keep ready to grab for the sessions. I like to travel light.
A lightweight easel is on my wish list but, until then, the folding table works well. It allows me to set up anywhere. When I paint outside I sometimes sit on the ground on a section of a plastic tablecloth and leave the table at home. Then all I need is my backpack.
