We had a new model for this Tuesday’s figure drawing session. She was a little nervious as she was new to the whole figure modeling thing, and she did’nt want to disapoint us with lackluster posing. That all evaporated once she hit the stage. She tossed out poses so interesting and graceful that I found myself constantly cursing my lack of time and talent.
I thought I would try something new during the 20 minute settings. Since I was using gouache for the Perfect Storm cover I completed last week, I thought I'd see how they would do in life drawing. The portrait sketch above is one of two gouache pieces I managed.
