Emily our beautiful model has very dramatic features and was a joy to paint. Michael stepped into my painting and showed me how do some exquisite brush work.
It was an amazing experience to be in a room where everyone is talented and wanting to learn more.
Here is my rendition of our model. We worked all afternoon on this.
Taking a class on Portrait Painting with master painter Michael Maczuga has been an amazing experience. There are 13 students in a smallish space in the classroom at Cole Gallery in Edmonds. You can see Michael’s work at http://michaelmaczuga.com/
Taking classes awakens your awareness to new ways of doing things, new ways of thinking and the opportunity to “hand out” with other artists. First day was challenging, but second day was fun! Today should be more of both: Challenging and Fun!!
