Time with my art group

Art group sketch

My time with my art group is short because my husband 
Steven drops my off, and then picks me up in an hour.  I like
the discipline of that short timeline. And as there are
a couple of breaks for the model during too, it is
even shorter.  So I am delighted when something comes
together at my art group.

This quick study was a bit rough because I was late to
the group on Tuesday, and didn't get quite the amount of time I
needed. So I did a little more work on it at home, and I'm happy
with it. The model was fabulous, and her outfit was beautiful
and complicated to paint. 

For me the point of a quick sketch isn't a perfect work
of art, it's just to loosen up, and to get to work with other

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much. I find painting from the model inspiring. So I am fast
in person, but so slow the rest of the time! LOL.

A beautiful, strong portrait! Drawing/painting from the model, for me, is so hard, but sometimes so exhilarating, especially if the model strikes some kind of chord ...

Hi Laura,

Thank you so much! We seem to have great models at our art group and they
almost always strike a chord.
