How wonderful a model was George. A very pleasant man, who gave two consecutive weeks of his time, to model for our art class. I love portraiture. It is such a challenge to get a likeness, but that is not enough in my books, I try for a personality likeness also. I chose the side view, primarily because everyone had crammed in on the frontal area and I like my elbow space. And I was so glad I had moved. The light skimmed his nose and caught on the philtrum underneath. I would have quite happily kept painting george, he has an interesting profile. And I suspect George loved the attention he recieved.
