Portrait sketches. Oil on canvas painted from life in the studio of Javier Marin www.pintormarin.com in Madrid. The models posed for between one and three sessions, each session lasting roughly three hours. It was fun, but also a real challenge to capture a likeness in such a short painting session. The models consist of a Play write, Dancer, Classical musicians, Singers and Friends.
