Peaches and Cream Portrait Study, 8x10", oil on canvas, Jessica Libor 2012

At Ellen Cooper’s portrait class last week, we completed the first portrait.  For me, this was two sittings, 3 hours each.  The model had the most wonderful, elegant profile, and flawless skin, the overall effect being that of an English noblewoman painted so frequently by John Singer Sargent.

Although my painting is no Sargent, I tried to capture the loveliness of her glowing skin and the attitude of her profile.
