Class continues at CAI

My teaching class at The California Art Institute continues tomorrow. Be there! This is Keri, our model from last week.

And also my pal... I finished this study today, 10 x 12.

Thanks gals...this was done outside of class. I have painted Keri quite a few times from life so I kinda knew her face and what I wanted to do with it.

This was done in about three painting sessions, the face sessions of about two hours, and then the finish of the cape and vintage tiara. Part of my vintage hat series. 10 x 12"

Thanks for liking it.

I just re-tweaked this. The neck was looking funny and the red needed a tad more pop. I like it much better. I will repost.
