Re: Portrait Journal

Thanks vhere, wish it was my kin. - He is actually the grandson of a classmate. He brought 2 of his g'sons to pose different days (one also an aspiring artist). Since we meet at a Senior Center we have mainly older models, friends or those who visit the center to just hang out. We really enjoy the change of face/body types when we get youth to sit! I call them the flat people-- no wrinkles to draw!

Re: Portrait Journal

Thanks Joan & Margo! Yes it is so nice to be in this group. We don't lack for models in part because we chip in $2 apiece and the model sits 2 hours for $20. We chip in a third buck to help keep the Center going after budget troubles last year. So that is as cheap as you are going to get for a great group of artists to share with & learn from.

Quite a few have been lifetime artists and in portrait work many years. Wonderful mentoring! Another perk is a set of digital photos of all the drawings/paintings for the model to pick up the following week. I posed twice just to get the collection to frame up in a collage format. Great memories in the making.

Re: Portrait Journal

Wonderful work Candace! What a great group you have there - the price is right and I'm sure the companionship and mentoring are worth far more than you pay. Love your comment about the "flat people." Ha!

Re: Portrait Journal

Candace, for some reason I was surprised when you said you had never posted your work before. Great first posts! Thanks for sharing.

The portrait group sounds really good, lucky you. Looking forward to seeing more of your portrait collection.

Re: Portrait Journal

Thanks Debby, Jean & Chris! Your comments are much appreciated! Yes it took a while to find a time DH & I could learn how to do this mysterious uploading. (Weather days off work for me- perfect!!) He is a programmer but this wasn't something he had done before & he is also a photographer. Mix that all together at the WC instruction thread, and guess what? We have learned how to work together on this, and DH joined WC at the Photography Forum!! Now he waits for that first timer approval thingy so he can jump in & post. A good day in spite of (or because of) the cold!
