Painting the Costumed Model

I've been away from blog-town for way too long! That's not for a lack of artwork, however... I'm currently enrolled in four art classes, so I'm doing TONS of painting, and I'm excited to share with you.

"Painting the Costumed Model" is first on my list to share. Models dress in comfortable or interesting clothes and sit in a single pose for three hours.  This gives artists so much time to refine drawings and paintings! I know it isn't easy to sit stone-still for three hours... I'm so grateful to these amazing models for their perseverance.

I'm sharing 8 paintings, beginning with my first week in the class and ending with the most recent. In a few weeks, I'm planning to post a tutorial on how I complete these paintings step-by-step, so stay tuned.


  1. These paintings are awesome! I look forward to hearing more about your work.

  2. Yes, these paintings are awesome. I'm enjoying your blog, Sarah.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it.
