Oil sketch of Rachel

This oil sketch of Rachel was painted from life in approx two hours. It was the first time Rachel had ever sat for a group and she sat incredibly still; it could not have been easy having a large group crowd around and scrutinize you (some of us through our bonoculars or monoculars). It was enjoyable to have such a lovely young model to work from, but a beautiful young face is so much harder to paint than a lived in, slightly craggy one:)


  1. It amazes me how quickly you got this painting. You are a master for sure.

  2. Thank you so much Carol, oh how I wish...:)
