Portrait Painting Class- The Finale!

Filed under: Classes — Tags: , — Lyndsay Booth @ 10:28 pm

The fall 2009 portrait painting class at The ArtsCenter has ended. I would like to thank the teacher, model and students for letting me come and document the class. Photographers are not always the most inconspicuous people in the world and I hope I was not too distracting for the students. The paintings turned out really well, so it looks like I didn’t get in the way too much. Check out the students’ completed work and other shots from the last class by clicking more at the bottom of the post.

Two of the handful of remaining students work on their portraits. The class size dwindled as the weeks went on, after students had completed their work. Some students remained to work on a second portrait or perfect their first one.

Almost there!

Almost done!
