Some of these are "pleine aire" (painted outdoors with existing light), some are from my own photos, and some from my imagination.
This is how I got started. I love setting up the "scenes" as much as painting them. Some of these are oil, some acrylic, generally done at home.
Most of these are painted live from a model. Big shout-out here to the Art Students League in New York. A few are of friends and loved ones willing to stay still, and others from photos.
