Lunch and a Portrait v1.0, v2.5 and v3.0

Wow, it has been a looooong time since I’ve posted any paintings on here… So why don’t I do just that, hmm?

Back in May (I think), Jessica and I had this grand idea to lure friends to our house with a promise of lunch in return for a little modeling. You know, like dinner and a movie, except instead of dinner it was lunch and instead of a movie it was a portrait. Makes sense if you think about it…

Anyhow, long story short, only the first one turned out to include lunch, the second was a light dinner, and the third I think just a cup of coffee (and I might have been the only one to have any). But in the end we ended up with four obliging friends and three paintings before the whole idea, uh, fizzled out… and here they are!

So Jaime was the first. All three ended up being about two hour sessions. Being the first though, this one is a little rough, but Jaime’s already agreed to do another sometime. Haven’t you Jaime? (blackmail, yessss.)

This one was a TWO-FER!!

And finally was Saroja! This one is weird cause I swear that depending on when you look at it, she’s either got a smile or a sneer. I think it may have to do with the fact that we were watching some questionable TV at the time. I knew I should have brought Star Trek…

    Ah! These are great! And of course I’ll be back for another session. Wait a second, Saroja got to watch Star Trek while you painted her? I’m totally bringing a season of X-Files next time I come.
