Winter Is Here

A white winter has arrived in Houston and indoor opportunities abound. I attended the opening reception for William Kalwick, Jr., at Jack Meier Gallery, and The Nerd, at Company OnStage.

The calm and content model

Lilibeth André, "Calm Contentment", oil on canvas board, 16x12

I completed the second figure painting of this young and energetic model. She manages to relax into a great pose and here you can see what a beautiful subject she is. As always, the shadows and light are my favorite elements to play with on the board. I enjoyed the whites of her porcelain-like skin and her red hair glowed despite being draped back in a messy bun.

After working with this model for November and December I can say I would gladly work with her again. I look forward to the opportunity in the future.
