North Light Studio

Here is a look at my Studio Setup. My modeling area is on the opposite side of the room. So when I need to paint from life, I just turn my easel around. Its on wheels so it moves easily. Sometimes, I setup a small pochade box so that I don't have to move my large easel. My large easel is on the west wall, and my modeling area is on the east wall. The windows are on the North wall. The South wall is for art supply storage and art books.

 My Art table is on wheels, so its always in a different spot.

Portrait of my Sister Mandy

Ive started a new portrait, this time my sister posed for me. I asked her to pose because she has natural red hair. These are my color studies. I may carry them further, but these are just guides that Ill use for the final painting which will be about 18X24. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to paint the large painting in oils or watercolors. I may go with watercolors this time. Ive also considered trying Casein paint.

I first did a life drawing, and then did a quick 5X7 color study, (upper right on my board). for the small study I used acrylics on paper.

The larger study, from my life drawing, is 8.5X12 oil on gessoed plywood. Ill likely carry this one a bit further, to establish details, like tree trunks, tree limbs, shrubbery, and plants, ect.. For those details Ill take the painting out in my backyard.
