Jess #1

"Jess #1"
6"x6" oil on canvas panel

It's such fun to paint with a model! My niece visited this weekend and was nice enough to sit for me after taking a look at one of the Peggi Kroll-Roberts DVDs. And she was a great model. Here's my first effort, which started out as the lesson on simplified shadow mass, but got too complicated before I stopped. I think the darks are too dark, and there is too much contrast between the darks and lights in the face, but I was happy with it for a first effort. I took some photos for future use when I have no model.


  1. Looks good! I like the darks in the face... looks mysterious...
    It's a cool painting Bobbi.

  2. Love it! Give it to Lawrence!
