Painters painting, model modelling, ......
Last Saturday, I got together with four artist friends for a wonderful afternoon of painting from the model. We do this every two weeks and it is always such a pleasure since it allows me to get my "art-brain" in gear again. Here two of the artists - John and Aino - are concentrating intently on their work. I don't think they were even aware that I was taking their picture.
And this was our amazing model for the day. He held the pose for hours and did a great job keeping his head steady and his body still. We were all in love with his fabulous leather jacket - great lights and darks and texture.
John's painting was, as usual, outstanding. He managed to get the essence of the model and the great leather jacket, in about 4 hours.
At the end of the day, the model got to relax with a glass of wine - a reward for all his hard work. Bravo - well done!
