Almost sight-size

Next weeks three new models, three paintings yet to make. After three still lifes I have again refurnished my atelier: no platform but a high crutch; a mirror beside me, opposed to the model. That appeases the model: not fully at the mercy of being looked at, it also looks at itself. And the easel almost beside the model, so almost sight-size painting. So for the next sessions I am prepared. And also for those who will visit me shortly to give a hint here and there – Repin… Chase… (but of course only next weeks).
