The Canvas Art Bar & Bistro is a haven for artists to get together and work from live models, while enjoying music, food and drink in downtown Portland. They even provide easels and art materials for use or sale so all you have to do is show up! So far, the models have been young, female, pretty, costumed. "Chelsea" wore a black feathered hat that gave her a wild appearance. I used a limited palette of acrylics, although sometimes I draw in pencil or ink.
