I was looking for a model to sit so I could practise and finish off a portrait a bit more than the usual classes. After I had created  a portrait of each of Marybeth’s two poodles she volunteered to sit for a couple of 2hr sessions so I could ‘play’.

 The painting I did of her was a cross between my usual unfinished colourful practise portrait and my commissioned work.I wanted to use colour freely but be a bit more refined.

A portrait from life

30 x 40cms
Oil on canvas practise portrait

Unlike the class portraits I managed to capture a smile and some of her personality in the sittings,
