Painting Models

I’ve had to rely on models to paint and photograph from the beginning of my art career. All my life, I have stumbled over my words when trying to talk to beautiful women. Come on – through high school I was the D&D game master with all the nerdy friends. Art changed that. I just knew what I wanted to create, how to create it and had this self-esteem that was just there because of art. There was no getting nervous really – well the beginning of any meeting between to people that feels sort of random is a little bit strange but that evaporates pretty quick into a ‘let’s create art’ mode.

I have worked with Sunni a few times and decided to paint her for practice. This was not a commission but more of a practice painting. I think one problem I have is I have to keep painting regardless of what it is. The very action of painting is the art to me – the finished painting doesn’t mean I am finished painting, I usually don’t stop for the day I just keep painting something.

If you are interested in a painted portrait I would love to hear about it. Email me at info@robertwheater.com and we can start talking about your art today.
