Megan

Megan was our last weeks model in my Friday live model class.  She was so sweet and the perfect model.  She's the granddaughter to one of the Artist in our group.  I loved the shadows hitting her face and of course I painted this at home after taking some reference photos...but I did sketch in class which was a wonderful practice for me.  (I'll get there..lol)

  4. Hello Hilda!:)What a beautifully executed portrait, and a lovely model. You manage to capture the youthful bloom of young skin so well and I love the colour of the background that also compliments her skin tone. I love it Hilda, and sure both grandfather and sitter love it too.
    All the best.:)

  8. What a beautiful, young woman, Hilda, and your painting of her is exceptional. You draw and paint skin in such a flawless manner. It makes her glow. I envy you your great talent for portraiture. I wonder what surface you use for your portraits and what size you like for them.

  24. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    J'ai honte d'avoir manqué autant de belles publications ! Je me pavane dans la nature et profite d'elle tout en délaissant mon ordinateur et les blogs !... Cependant je pense fort à vous tous et vous me manquez aussi... Peu à peu je reviendrai plus assidûment !
    J'ai beaucoup de chance toutefois aujourd'hui en admirant trois jolis portrait dont celui de ta petite-fille...
    J'aime beaucoup la douceur qui jaillit dans chacun d'eux. Que ce soit le travail de la peau ou de la chevelure, toutes mes félicitations ! Je suis éblouie !
    Je t'envoie de gros bisous
