Artist & Birdman #3 Pastel 25" X 19" (c) 2020 Roger Weise

These Model Studies were done in the year of the Covid.

They were started at model sessions before the Covid in 2019.

They were finished in my studio March through December 2020                           

 I don’t work from sketches. I add layers to the original sketches

started on archival paper at the model sessions.

The models were barely paid subsistence wages, and were not always

inspiring.  Sometimes I would shift my attention to other artists for material and

wound up drawing them. Often I drew both the artist and model and tried

to capture a bit of that relationship.

Thanks for Looking!
