Model Patience


Out of all the artist who participated in the Canyon Road Paint Out this is the only one who had a live model. They were across the street from yesterday's artist at the Greenberg Fine Art gallery. This guy was a true sport. It was a little warm being out in the sun.

Kate said...

I've modelled for some of my artist friends and it does indeed take a great deal of patience and discipline to remain still. What a fun event this must have been!

Halcyon said...

I love the idea of a "paint off". Sounds like great fun!

I agree, sitting in the sun couldn't have been comfortable. The artist is very talented.

These artists absolutely amaze me...to have the skill to do that out in the open with people watching blows my mind. And it looks like in this case she really knows what she's doing!

Hi Randy, just catching up on the posts that I've missed over the last few days. Love your series on the Canyon Road Paint Out, the 'Elephant Dance' sculpture (not that I'm quoting your haha!) is excellent fun! Thanks heaps for your good wishes, very much appreciated. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

I was thinking it might be a little warm in that sunshine. Like you said - good sport.

Creativity at it's best! The model, the artist, the photographer, all creating an image! Randy your images say alot!

cieldequimper said...

Looks like she's a very good artist. I wonder if he got a sunstroke...

VP said...

She is good, he is patient, and you caught the process perfectly!

lifeisaroadtrip said...

I have to think that being a model is hard work. Also, you don't get to eat much pizza!

Regina K said...

Both the model and artist are doing a great job. Excellent subject.

Jack said...

Nice one, Randy! She is doing a good likeness.

Jarart said...

Great shot of art, artist and model.

Yes that lady is doing a great job by the looks of it! Hope that guy didn't suffer from any heat stroke after the painting!

It's so wonderful that you live in such an artistic place. What a pleasure it must be to be able to walk the streets and see art being created all around you. More cities need that. I hope that it catches on in all cities everywhere. And soon!

Gunn said...

wow, she has artistic talents!

Cezar and Léia said...

I think the artist would lose his patience with me as I would really not able to stay put... :)
God bless you!
