At almost all art shows, be they a weekend or a month showing, There is usually one of two evenings where some of the artists participate in what they call a "QUICK DRAW"...a play on words from the "Ol' West"!!

But 95% of the artists do a "quick paint"...usually only one hour from start to finish! This was one of my last participations, thank goodness this gentleman offered to model for me! As you can see it was probably a 16x12 inch painting! AND came out pretty much as a good portrait of this character.

As with all of the paintings in this section...they held still for an hour plus...to achieve the final results. Of course, the one hour creations were usually either 8x10 or 12x16....the larger creations were up to 3 h ours, usually at a friend's studio...

I truly miss going to Rendezvous...living in the country now no great need to "escape the big city"!!! LOL
