"Stephanie",  16"x 20", Oil on canvas


This is our lovely model from an "Open Studio" paint out Saturday in Tina Garrett's studio, located in Lee Summit, MO.    The smaller photo is the initial study I did in 2 1/2 hours.    After getting home,  I stepped back and I could see the mistakes I'd made..................So with the above reference photo, and about 6 hours of work later,  I'm pretty happy with the results.    The reference photo of Stephanie doesn't show the colors as well, nor does it show a lot of the details of her face.   A photo just doesn't work as well as from life.     Thanks again Tina, and Stephanie, it was wonderful spending the morning with you.   I hope to do it again soon.
