On Monday, I was a guest of Lorenzo, invited to paint the model with 4 other artists, at his beautiful studio in Laguna Beach.  Being in Lorenzo's studio was like being transported back in time to an Italian atelier.  Lorenzo's classical masterworks adorned the walls and his book collection, an 18th century master drawing, and lovely music added to the inspiration.  See his website at  http://www.lorenzo-art.com/

Although I was using a new paper that I'm largely unfamiliar with--Colorfix by Art Spectrum--I achieved an acceptable result.  The drape of Patty's white robe off of her bare shoulders was poetic and beautiful and exciting to paint. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog post where I painted "The Pope" at the So Cal Artists atelier session.
