I started painting this as a means to share with some friends how I work on this kind of piece from the concept stages, building the layers, decisions and, in general, feeling my way through the paint to create the softness or sharpness that my eye perceives. 

These little clips are from my North light studio at Union Square, Manhattan, NY, while I'm talking to new oil painters about the early stage of the painting process.  

If you are interested in learning more about process as a student of Leah Lopez Atelier contact me at studio@leahlopez.com,  I am interviewing students who wish to develop skills through drawing and painting.  Summer classes begin soon.
