Painting Portraits

I am taking a figure painting class from Chris Thornock, a painter that has a lot of experience painting and selling portraits.  He is a great painter, and I think a lot of it is due to the fact that he took a figure painting class every semester he was in school (he said that was 24 classes, 12 for undergrad, 12 for grad).  Today was the first day that we actually watched him paint, instead of just hearing about it and having him teach us.  It was fascinating how he works with oil paints. I wish I got a photo with the model, because the picture looks exactly like her! It was truly amazing and very inspiring.
