Cooper much prefers to paint from life in one of her studios in New York City and the Berkshires, or on site. Life sittings can be augmented by sketches and photographs depending on the sitters availability and/or fidgetiness. She enjoys the process, and sitters are often surprised that they do too.

“My husband commissioned Hilary to do my portrait as a birthday gift. ‘Oh no’ I thought. I don’t want to have to sit still for hours while someone scrutinizes me. It will be awful. But surprisingly, the sittings turned out to be fun and animated. Hilary and I told stories, joked, took plenty of breaks and listened to music. It was very relaxed and easy.” — Grace Harvey
