Underpainting in BlueI went to my art group figure night tonight and was
delighted to see this young woman posing. She is
a student at OCAD I believe, our local art college/turned
university. The look of astonishment on her face
may be because she was asked to pose so severely,
straight back, sitting up. But I like the expression --
so much feeling in an otherwise, young, happy
I painted her on a mostly blue ground done with
palette knife. As time was short it was lucky
that the blue was exactly the colour of her blouse.
Fooling around with my friends at the club is
always a pleasure, and tonight everyone was in
great good spirits.
Have a making-your-friends-laugh day.
