I did this drawing from life and it took a little less than 20 minutes - kind of a gesture portrait. It's just wonderful to have models right here in River City and get to practice my all time favorite drawing exercise - short pose. I used 9 x 12" Colourfix paper in a light grey blue. Thanks so much for stopping by! Please visit my oil pastel blog
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
