"The red sweater" 8"x10" oil on canvas

I've noticed that the pictures I post don't show the detail in the brushstrokes or slight changes of color like the original painting does.   Our model showed up today on this very cold 20° F morning with her winter hat and layers of clothing.  These Friday model sessions are really helping me to get more for less.   I get more color, more untouched brushstrokes and the essence of the pose with less time.   I used to paint the  model in two sessions, now I try to get it in one and move on.
