"Man From Arizona" -- 14" x 11" -- Oil
Some of the best models I have painted are at workshops in places like Scottsdale, AZ, and Jackson, WY, and are often actors or professional models. They have access to interesting costumes that add energy to the experience and, through practice, know how to hold an expression without becoming dazed or drowsy. They help immensely. (If I'm lucky, I find someone once in a while who is a natural, as was LT, a favorite local model.)
This man was from Scottsdale and had such a classic western look!
