Thank you friends!
As my prior ideas about arts generated a positive vibe I would like to announce the new and officially the first project of this kind where the paintings will be created as a part of series. For this series, I would like to have you as a model.
Its an enrichment project and a learning opportunity for me as a new artist.
Call for models
For this project you are all invited to participate as a model.
Anyone in the range of 14 - 50 can take part.
The portraits will be painted from your photos that I will take. So, you don't have to sit for the paintings.
The photoshoot would be 20 to 40 minutes long, followed by a get-to-know session. It would include a small introduction and discussion about details of the process. We will discuss your likes, dislikes, favorite color, and stuff like that. A mini interview, if you like.
Based on this session, I will paint your portrait.
You don't have to be present for painting part. But you can always check on the progress. In fact, I will regularly update you on the progress.
This project will begin towards the end of July or beginning of August and would continue until around Christmas/ New Year.
I will hand out more information and other details as a followup and would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
For the exhibition purposes, your personal information will not be revealed.
I am a beginner artist trying to make a difference with my love of portraiture.
For my sample work please visit this post.
I work from my home-studio based out of Bay Area. So, if you are local you can visit when you like!
This series Friends will be created for an exhibition.
It will be a collection of portrait paintings created around a theme.
The portraits will be painted from photographs selected from the ones that I would take. Model can bring the pictures of their liking. If you are not available for the picture shoots but would like to participate, we can set up a phone call where we can discuss how you may have your own pictures taken and sent over for the painted portraits.
During photoshoot, I will try to capture the personality as a whole. Likes, dislikes, favorite color, special interests, hobbies, and any other information that you'd like to share. If we have already met, the photoshoot time would be really short.
I am planning to paint over 20 portraits but only 12- 14 will make the final cut for the exhibition.
The painted portraits will be used for the purpose of art enrichment such as exhibition and will be available for sale after that.
Any prints of the portraits will be made available to the model free of cost.
The model can buy their original portrait after it's been exhibited.
It is a volunteering opportunity for the art project.
