portraits / by Nicole M

Here are a couple painting exercises/self-portrait studies...and now I really need to find myself some new models because I am really tired of painting/drawing myself..
Ok here is 1...
and a detail of number 2...

and speaking of models, if you've ever lived in the Commons, then you might have seen this really adorable old woman who always walks out front or sits on the bench with her bff...well her name is Margo, and she modeled for our portrait class last week! =) I want to give her this portrait as a present.
