An alla prima oil painting of Cheryl from our bi-monthly portrait painting session.

We are lucky to have so many professional and amateur models willing to sit for us. Each session is 3 hours, with 10 minute breaks every 20 minutes.

This is on Claessens Belgian linen (13DP), a fine surface that wipes back to the canvas.

As I was painting today, I thought of this as my ‘before’ painting as I’m about to spend four days at a Michelle Dunaway portrait workshop. I can hardly stand the wait.

I’m excited to see how it impacts my painting and deepens my work. Looking forward to the ‘after’.
