I almost forgot to post this. It was done at the SBAA sketch meeting with a live model last week. This is 5 x 7. Please come visit Angelina in Venice at http://angelinaslifeinvenice.blogspot.com

You do wc portrait so well. It is great that you can find the real model to sit for you. Keep it rolling.

So well done, Joan! He is a handsome gentleman.

seriously? I mean really? Is there anything you can't paint? I think I know that guy... and I promise that face recognition software would pick him up! LOL

BEAUTIFULLY done, JOan!! I agree -- you do portraits beautifully -- tender and wonderful!

Ai - It is fun to work from the model. Thanks.

Sherry - Thanks!!

Tee - Thank you. I made him look about 20 years younger than he actually is. lol

Lin - Thanks! I'll have to keep doing them from photos. As soon as it is nice enough (hopefully next week) plein air will start again.
