Our group on Thursday painted our first male model, Charles. He is a musician from Bakersfield, and one of my kid's friends. Enlisting models seems to take a standard course...first you get family members and then talk friends into posing. Charles had never posed before, but being used to performing, he didn't mind us squinting and staring at him. It is an odd fact, but there are probably more kids in Vermont with dreadlocks than in most other states. Yes, 2 of my 5 children wore them at one time or another, and I must admit....they are fun to paint! This, again, is an alla prima oil on panel.
