I'm an artist/painter, and I create all of my artwork out of my studio in southern Maine, which is a little over an hour's drive north of downtown Boston.
I usually hire models to model for my pastel figure paintings and pastel portraits, but I am also available for trade work.
When I hire a model, a typical session lasts 3-4 hours. I like to draw from the model for the first 45 minutes to an hour, and the remaining time is then spent shooting reference photographs to paint or draw from at a later time. These reference photos are never shown or published and are destroyed upon the painting's completion.
If you would like, you can TFP with me for either a pastel portrait of yourself, an original pastel figure painting, or a figure drawing of yourself, please message me.
Please note however, that I DO NOT WORK FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S PHOTOS- if you would like to TFP with me, you must come to my studio for us to work together.
You can see more of my paintings, including recent ones for sale at the
above listed "Timothy Parks Gallery Page" link.
