Instead of an encaustic painting, for something different this post is a 2 hour 20"x16" oil painting I did during one of the Candlelight Wine Cheese Live Model sessions held at my studio in Portland. To see a short video of one of these Candlelight sessions scroll down through my posts and you can view a video of one of the sessions. These live model events are quite fun for the artists who attend. We paint or draw from the model for 25 minute sessions with 10 minute breaks between. We bring snacks to share during the breaks while we visit with one another, and we time our sessions and breaks so we stay focused. Candles around the room provide ambiance and our great models provide the inspiration.
