Painting from Life

While I’ve been drawing from life on a regular basis for almost twenty years, I only started painting from life in earnest a few years ago. I felt limited by my own imagination when painting out of my head. I needed to know more about color and light. These paintings were done in three hours a piece. When trying to paint accurately from the live model it feels like a three hour long sprint. These paintings are of two of my favorite models, Traci and Linda. They’re both done in gouache on 14×18″ Annigoni paper.
