"Kami," oil on canvas, 18" x 24, 2013.
I took another class at SAS, this time it was a workshop by Robert Lemler, an artist who lives in Phoenix.  Anyway, it was pretty fun.  I wish there had been more painting time.  I mainly took it so that I could have a full day to paint, considering this doesn't happen very often now.  This was the last painting I did.  It was a workshop on making fast paintings, which I like to do, so that was all pretty interesting.  I think I picked up some tips, both about teaching and about painting.  This painting wasn't all that fast but was made in about 45 minutes.  I had some major trouble fitting the model into the canvas, and then with her face, otherwise I might have gotten a bit farther but I definitely liked it the most of what I did.

I am pretty excited about many of these drawings.  I have been working on colored pencil portraits for the last few months and so I am super happy to have a place to start to show them.
