Today we had a beautiful model! She is the lead singer of a ten man band (soul/jazz style from ’63 to the ‘70s). in her repertoire there are songs of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Whitney Houston, Ella … etc. I just heard a few songs on Youtube and I’m blown away. What an artist! We were very lucky to have her.
After a first sketch with pencil, here so far the study of a Samo woman with pastel. It’s a pity that there are vertical lines within the paper, so I won’t finish this one, but it was an excercise anyway as a preparation for another with oil paint.
The last two Friday evenings I joined a portrait painting group. It’s a two hour session. I didn’t paint though, used pastel crayons and stumping for now. When we continue in September I’ll experiment with paint. The first is of Jaqueline and the second was a double portrait of Mark and Jorien.
