This is a young model that we have drawn and painted many times. I decided to make this a value study since we only had one session instead of the usual two.  We talked of haircuts, haircut memories and the local politics.  These life model sessions can be reminiscent of the salons of the last century.

Whenever I'm in Petaluma  I like to make a stop at the farm store on Frates Road for my produce. They use sustainable practices and volcanic rock dust in the soil. The greens are as much medicine as food. http://www.greenstringfarm.com
In this painting I was trying to differentiate the saturation of the color in the close up lettuce against the grape vine covered hills in the distant fog.
