Last Saturday we painted another girl : Nicole San Filippo. What a doll. We used a Franz Klein painting. Mostly black and white, with some smaller touches of blue. In painting more girls and working with these abstract paintings, something that I completely forgot to consider was the fact that all of these artists used OIL! OIL! But of course! We're using non-toxic airbrush paint which cracks and dries within minutes. Not exactly the same feeling as oil. Trying to find the happy medium (ha!) between these two types of paint has been a bit of a challenge, but certainly never ceases to make me fall in love with it more. We're figuring out how to photograph better, how to direct the model more cohesively and how to develop the concept. All in all, success.
