"Clif" 12x12 oil on canvas

I have been working on another large painting in my class and am making good progress, however, got to class today and once again the model didn't show. Initially I was really bummed. I wanted to work on the one I had planned on working on. Boo!

Clif, one of our monitors, offered to sit for us. What a great time I had! A very fun, loose little daily painting. Surprises are always the best! As often happens when I photograph at the Academy, the picture doesn't do it justice. But I wanted to share it anyway.


  1. Hi Tonya,

    I don't think my comment went through so here it is again. Yes, they are mug shots. Karin's take her 30 minutes. Mine take 5 hours, yikes! Are you going to take her class again?

  2. What a great little painting. Love the shirt. Looks like Clif had an okay time posing as well.

  3. this is so natural and has a story...I love it!
