Oil on panel, 10" x 8"
When Liz Rowley told me she had two models who were going to dress like chefs for my demo, I was a bit startled- you mean I have to paint TWO people in a 2 hour demo- but it was actually a lot of fun. The models were great, and the height difference between them made the composition interesting. The older gentleman was quite a talker, and I ended up wiping his face off twice before he kind of settled into a stance that he stayed in long enough for me to paint.
Liz had tried really hard to get ahold of some chef hats, with no luck, so we improvised by taping 3 sheets of white paper together for each hat.
A big thanks to my friend Anne, who stayed for the whole thing and took the photos.
