Portrait Society Meeting

Many people have great ideas. What doesn't occur to many of these people is that they can turn some of these ideas into great realities.  -Morgan Green

Today was another meeting of the Portrait Society of Reno which has been meeting non-stop for about 50 years ... it was my first time attending .... very informal ... 9 to 12:30 ... a live model ... arrive; set up your easel; paint ... that's it. Today there about a dozen people .... last week 5 artists ..... sometimes only 3 and once last year 1 person :-)

Live models present their own challanges. The artists attending painted in wayer color, oil, colored pencil and pastel. I used oil and as you can see below one was monochrome and the other was a very limited palet. I did 3 gesture paintings ... 2 here and maybe the other later.

Turn your dreams into realities.
