"Lisa" ©

Today I was allowed to paint a live model for the first time. Another artist arranged for me to join in a weekly event of painting in a private studio. I was unsure of what I would manage to get onto the canvas. The advantage of working in a controlled environment is having the light stay constant, usually I am outside and the light is shifting every few minutes. What was wonderful was to be able to really look at another human without either one of us feeling odd. Lisa chose to keep her eyes shut. I don't know if this a common pose, I didn't care I was just thrilled to have the chance to paint looking at a live lovely lady, named "Lisa".
