On Tuesday when my plein air group was supposed to meet we had rain and snow showers...not quite what you need to paint outdoors. So I headed over to Bellport and joined the SBAA portrait group.
I hadn't done a real portrait in quite a while (just quick sketches of people) so it took me a while to get into the grove. Claire posed for us in what I guess is sort of a Mexican vest and hat. Doing a black hat against black hair was not easy. This is 5 x 7.
