The best of the bunch from my regular monthly all day workshop - Rosemarie, a superb model although I do sometimes struggle with the slender ladies.
Pastel on Rives BFK - A2 approx
This is the WIP over two weeks from life - about 4.5 hours in total. I finished off her face and tweaked the drapery a bit afterwards but its largely as it was. This is from a new weekly group I've joined, the studio and lighting are really good, its got a great atmosphere and the models are top notch. You come to appreciate a really good model that can keep still when some of them can be like moving targets - may as well sketch in the pub in that case!
Oil on Linen 16" x 20"
No more naked people for a while, off to France to do flowers or vines or whatever takes my fancy.
