The next step is a sitting session at my studio for three following days.

I paint directly from life, an experience that is fascinating for the model and the artist as well. During the sitting the conversation continues, only interrupted by refreshments or a walk. At the end of the last sitting a close acquaintance of the model will visit the studio to have a look at the portrait. After the consent of the commissioner I will finish the portrait in absence of the model.
