1. Iron Worker

 A couple weeks ago I joined an evening painting group in Newburgh, New York. For the three-hour session, we had a model named Larry who works a day job in Manhattan as a "skywalker," a structural iron worker in high rise construction. I painted him in oil against a simple sky-tone background and cropped him tight to make him look even more imposing.

Garin Baker (left) was the host for the session at his studio, called the Carriage House Atelier. That's Kevin Ferrara with the "brushstache" on the right. Contact Garin if you're interested in his instructed or open sessions. Larry will be there this Thursday in a flyfishing outfit.
