Random shameless self-promotion.

  • Celestially inspired Swarovski crystal constellation cuff links
  • Sterling moon phase earrings made with Cape May Diamonds

 

First Impressions: Tamara

First Impression: Tamara, Oil painting on canvas First impressions.

This one was different in the sense that I showed up for one of the life drawing groups I draw with and the model was a woman I know and dance with! Tamara. She’s wonderful.

These first impression paintings are somewhat about how much information we fill in on our own from an initial meeting, exchange of energy, first impression. Overthinking.

In writing this post, I  found a raw and personal draft about this project from a year ago when these were just forming. I still haven’t gotten to the place where it feels appropriate to share it though. Maybe someday.

Anyway, I’ve been making slow paintings from quick croquis.  I worked from a 30 second gesture drawing here. There are some process shots in the gallery below too. If it’s not done, it’s close.

It was difficult to find a stopping point with this one, I know her and what she looks like. I suppose it’s kind of parallel to the sense of meeting some who has strong and familiar energy pull.

It doesn’t look like her.

Tamara is a fantastically creative woman. See what I’m talking about in her blog.

Pretty boring.

The latest photo category trending on this ugly, interesting blog 😉

It’s a section of pretty pictures, for the sake of nothing more than being a pretty picture. Well, and a link to purchase said pretty picture, of course.  There’s a time and place for everything. Some days, pretty is pretty ok.

Did you know there’s sketch club that meets monthly at the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville for figure drawing with a live model? It’s a nice group with wonderful models.

It’s $10, the fee covers the model. Sometimes Dave brings wine.

Bring your own supplies, all mediums welcome.
