I did this painting week before last. I owe much of the success of this painting to the model, Henry William Oelkers, who posed patiently and steadfastly and not only that but he created and assembled the costume which involved buying the helmut and painting it in order to make it believable, so extraordinary effort […]

I did this drawing last week. I started with vine charcoal and quickly moved to a few colors in pastel pencil and white Nupastel.

She was a great model, fun to paint. She had a wonderful, colorful, bright blue satin robe which contrasted harmoniously with the bright golden tones of her hair and with her olivey skin tones. After posing her, I put up […]

  This was my painting from last week at the Art Students League. Felt I did a good job of getting the sensitivity of her face. She was a great model, very patient and very still – nothing more an artist could ask for.

This is a painting I did last week at the Art Students League. I wiped out the first day of painting (Monday) but on Tuesday it progressed fairly quickly, by Friday I had enough time to do a drawing of Donna (see post). This is an addendum, here are two photos of me along with […]
