I've put in four three hour sessions at the studio with Katrina posing live, and probably 10 hours at home working from a reference photo. I'm working at home from the pic because I only have two more three hour sessions with her. What a wonderful model she is.
We live at the north end of Seattle in Shoreline, Washington. Between the two of us, we've been struggling, striving, and sometimes even enjoying our efforts with oils, pastels, or acrylics for 80 years! We'd love to hear from you.
