For the past three plus years I have been painting every week at Johan Sellenraad's studio with Johan and Judith Reeve. Other artists will often join us but the three of us have painted most every week from the beginning. Over that time we've had six or eight different models. For the past 2 years our model has been Catherine.
We have formed a sort of collaboration. Sharing ideas on color, style and composition. We each have a different style to our work. We influence each other through selection of pose to the mood of the sessions. I have been strongly influenced buy both Judith and Johan. Johan has changed how I attack the canvas with the influence of line. Judith has opened my eyes to structured color. One day I'll fit the whole figure on the canvas;).
This August we are having a show at the Delaware Valley Art Alliance in Narrowsburg, New York . An exhibition of three very different artist's paintings and drawings. Working from one model for over a year. The show will run from August 17th to September 15th in the Loft Gallery at DVAA. With an Artis's talk on August 21st and DVAA Gallery.
Catherine. Never a bad pose. Always graceful in gesture. Without her there would be no show.
