Friday Model

I did this portrait at my Friday Long Island Portrait group.  This model was a joy to paint.  Her hair had such beautiful shades of red....a mixture of many browns, burnt sienna and touches of oranges.  I think I had more fun trying to get that perfect mixture of colors.  Her bow and shirt had many colors of purples which went well with her hair!  I hope to see her model for us again in the future...

The girl with the black hat

I love taking my granddaughter to the mall.. not sure how she feels about it because she knows that it always turns into a photo   I love the Hat Department!  So many hats so many colors!!   She has always been such a good model so I think I'll keep her for awhile.

Grand Canyon West

If you haven't visited the Grand Canyon it must be added to your bucket list..a place like no other!  Looking down the canyon at all those colors and seeing the Colorado River in the distance is absolutely breathtaking!!  We went on the Skywalk which is located on the West of the Canyon about 4-1/2 hrs. from the South Rim.  It is on the Huaalapai Indian Reservation.  The glass platform allows you to look down into the canyon about 2000ft.  The Panoramic view is amazing.  I used my Terry Ludwig portrait set for this piece since the colors were so perfect.  I did my best but I realize now that I could have used more purples!!
