SA Link

Nadine visited us from South Africa in the spring - her first trip to Canada. I had her sit by the window so I could take a few photos to practice my portraits.

Best Model Ever

Pencil on Paper, 11" x 14"

Nicky is the calmest model I've had the pleasure of working with. She sat for hours at a time, as still as a yogi and she seemed to emanate a simliar centred peacefulness. I started this drawing in the portrait class that I attended at James Picard's studio in late May and finished it at home, using a reference photo. I'm also working on a painting of Nicky that I started the same day. The painting, equally calm, is sitting for hours on my easel waiting for attention.
