Here is an update on the work of the students in the portrait painting class held at the ArtsCenter on Mondays. This set was taken two weeks after the last set. Some of the students have finished their first portraits and moved on to another rendering of the model. Check back in two weeks to see more!

Two different interpretations of the same person. Each student has a different angle of view. The student of the portrait in the foreground sees the model at a straigher angle than the student painting the portrait in the background. This differences also results in sublter differences than simply body position, including different positions for shadow and highlight.
