Life drawing

Recent life drawing of Atlanta model, Megan O. Conte and pastel. 20 minute drawing.


I've finished the painting of dancer Chelsea S. I'm calling it "Fire"...the red tutu reminds me of flames. This painting will hang at Espresso Lane in Newnan during July.

Painting in progress of local dancer, Chelsea S. I'm not capturing the beautiful subtleties of light and shadow that are in my photos but there are some things I'm liking about this painting. I'm liking the painterly quality of the tutu that is coming across in the original and the unfinished look in the floor. I may change the color of the floor...still debating that one. This photo is not good...I'll try to get a better one when I'm finished.
