I want to paint more often from life but with the littles it is so difficult to have a sitter that would fit in my painting schedule. Today I decided to tackle the impossible and paint my wiggly son during nap time. I place a movie at a strategic angle and got started. His head moved in every direction so my view kept shifting but I did my best to do a 1.5 hour alla prima painting of him.
I know that some things were not quite right but the movie is over and the Baby will soon wake up. My daughter wants me to paint her during nap time tomorrow, so for now I have some willing but wiggly subjects to work from.
