Emily T was outstanding as our model tonight. She held some difficult poses very well and wore a beautiful, green tutu. As she was bringing it in though, upside down, two of us thought it was a fern. We don't get out much. Both drawings shown are approx 15 minutes...conte and pastel. Most life drawings are for sale. These two are $225 each.

Elizabeth T is ready for the beach in her straw hat and green wrap. Timely and well executed poses by a new model last night at class. I'm thinking that someone needs this in their beach house.
conte and pastel, approx 8"x20"...art area.
PS...The 5th Dimension suggested the title.

Painting underway of dancer Robin V. I love the hands in this one and am trying to keep that as my focus. I'm also trying to match the beautiful baby blue color of my the actual outfit. I'm using W/N manganese blue and some ultramarine blue...along with permalba white. I see a lot of life and movement in this work even though the model is in a restful pose. 24x30.

My daughter was the model for tonights class. This was my favorite even though I had a couple of more I liked. 15 minutes, conte and pastel. Some good foreshortening practice here. Don't avoid things you have trouble with...faces, hands, foreshortening etc...instead, seek them out, position yourself to work on those things you have difficulty with...you'll get better only by practice.
