The painting group at Dee's this week held many surprises. The model was great. I try to move around the room so that some weeks I have rim light, sometimes side light, sometimes three-quarter, and sometimes flat light. I chose to paint flat light this week. Flat light is always difficult, but it is good to battle it out and try. Remember, there's work in brushwork! So, my brain had a workout, and I'll post the results tomorrow.
At one of the breaks, one of the other artists asked Priscilla the ages of her children. She answered, "Violet will be 4 years old in June, Emma is 16 months, and NEW BABY IS DUE IN NOVEMBER!!" What a surprise! Boy, was it hard to keep my mind on painting.
Yes, I love painting, but I really love being a grandma! Besides....there will be more models!
