This is a model from my workshop for the Pastel Society of the Southwest, in Grapevine, TX, November, 2014. The workshop studio was a large room above a fancy furniture store. We were given permission to set up a photo shoot in the furniture store below. We broke up into several groups and took turns going downstairs with our cameras to photograph this lovely model. I set up the lighting and had the model move continually so we could have natural rather than stiff formal poses. There were countless beautiful photos to work from in the studio the next day. This is one of my resulting oil sketches.
This is a 12x16 oil on unstretched canvas. It will need to be mounted and framed. It is up for auction on DailyPaintworks.com. Bidding begins at @200. Click on the title above or cut and paste: http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/406563
