V104: Costume Painting at Nevada Museum of Art, Class 1

Last night was my first class of the costume painting open studio at the Nevada Museum of Art.  I have modeled for previous sessions, and it just looked like so much fun, so I enrolled and, well, there ya go.

The model was Carolyn, in her gorgeous 1780s robe a l’Anglaise, complete with hedgehog wig and giant Gainsborough hat.  I was so happy to get to paint 18th century, and get stuck in with all the details.

The class is one 3 hour-long pose, so plenty of time to fiddle with rendering satin and facial features. 🙂  I’m already looking forward to next week, yay!
