Rosy and Jake

I've been meaning to post this photo for a while (I took it back on the 16th). It's from an event where Jake Spicer did a live painting of Rosy Carrick at Art@TaylorMade. I've seen lots of paintings but not much painting. I arrived in time to see Jake make his first marks and loved watching how Jake picked out which lines from the real world he was would use.  Jake said that he can't look at a person without mapping out their face for a portrait or planning the shading.

  1. Thats a great angle there James, if you dont mind I might just pinch that photo…I still need a couple of hours to finish that particular painting, hopefully I’ll be able to show you the finished version in the not too distant future.
