Hi. My name is Aaron Westerberg,and I'm a painter living in Los Angeles, and I'm going to show you guys how I paint. So today, what we're going to do is we're going to start and I'm going to show you how I photograph a model for a painting, and what I do before I actually start a painting. So my process is basically I'll have an idea. You know, I'll hire a model, do a photo shoot, do a color study from the pose that I like the best. Working from life is the best, and I've worked a lot from life, so I kind of know the pitfalls of working from a photo. The color study criteria is I have to do it fast, no fingers, no toes, no detail, just the big statements, big value statements. Proportion's important, but detail's not. Then from the color study, I'll go to the larger painting. These are the steps I do that have led to the most success for me, painting.
