portraits again

Another portrait 'class' ( no teacher ..experiment and teach yourself). We had a gorgeous black Zambezi model.. her nature is as lovely as she looks..Everyone was very quiet today.I think they were intimidated by her beauty and trying to capture it. Although Valerie ( the model) liked my portrait of her and said it looked like her I was a bit disappointed.. 2.30hrs isn't long enough to really get a good enough result if you wanted to finish it off a bit more.Still I am happy with the glow I got with the colours..

Also when she came closer I could see another reason. I am set up about 20 ' away from her and I just can't see well enough to do her justice. When she came up close I could see all these gorgeous greens and yellows in her flesh but at a distance she just looks black / brown..Unfortunately due to space constraints you can't set up your easel any closer..oh well at least it stops me from getting bogged down in detail!
