Woman in Blue

A model can make all the difference in a painting. The poses she chooses, the way she channels attitudes, and the clothing she wears can make all the difference to the way the artist interprets a scene.

This morning we had a particularly expressive model, and as a result, I had a very productive three hours of painting. I liked so many of my 20- minute gouache sketches that I had trouble picking a favorite to share, which is an unusual experience for me. I eventually chose this one because her lowered head and steady gaze conveyed a brooding attitude that was accentuated by the blue clothing.
