Three weeks, three models

 Three very different but equally inspiring models - I'm putting the time in this year.

The lovely Rose, a regular model at our weekly sessions and an amazing artist in her own right.

Thought I would try pen for the warm ups - hence the giant tree looking hands, had to move them.  No forgiveness with the ink but I kinda like it.

Another regular at the Sunday full day workshop - Christiana is such a trouper and challenging to capture but its great when it works.

Its been a long time since I've done any two minute gestures - I did enjoy them though.


I liked how I shaded this at the very end of the the 30 minute pose with the light contrasting the dark and dark contrasting the light.

 This was a fun one.

In readiness for a new encaustic piece.  Graphite on watercolour paper and I needed to capture just the basic shapes and the shadow lines.

The long pose.

This was an amazing new (to us) model that we had last Tuesday - The lovely Rachael is an actress and model and gave us some really dynamic and interesting poses.  She is very beautiful and I was just sorry I couldnt capture her portrait too. Hopefully we will see her again.
