"Sara" Live Model Figurative Oil Sketch

Sara was our model at last Sunday's Candlelight Wine Cheese Live Model art session at my studio in close-in NE Portland.  This is a 24"x12" oil sketch which I painted of her.  Being an artist herself, Sara instinctively knew how to inspire us with her hairdo, clothing, and pose. If you are interested in more information about these Candlelight sessions, scroll further down in this blog to see a short video of an earlier session.  The Candlelight group meets one Sunday evening a month from 5-8 PM and is open to any artist who signs up early enough to get a spot since the sessions do fill up in advance. -Janet Amundson-Splidsboel
