Life Studies
Life studies art, painting directly from the live model is a valuable practice for every figurative painter. These paintings are done over 3 hour sessions with a live model but that’s really only 2 hours of actual time with the model.
While these pieces do not deliver the composition or narrative that I look for in my studio painting, they are exciting and dynamic in their own way. These are like the weekly ballet class and the studio work becomes the polished composed performance.
