Thanks so much Sally and  Danielle.  I have to say I am loving doing these even though not that great.  This was our model tonight, Ryn.  3 20 min segments to draw.  I sketched in charcoal and added some pastel quickly.  She is the same model as last time.

Lynn,

At first the photo was not there, then I clicked on the X and it appeared.  Wow, glad I did - would not want to have missed this beautiful drawing.

Even the chair looks good.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Fantastic Lynn.  You are doing so well and it is lovely to see what you can do in such a short time frame.  Makes me panic!!!  You must have nerves of steel.   Anyway, it is gorgeous and so well done.   Patricia

Thanks Mea, Patricia and Natalie.  I am becoming addicted to drawing people from life.  Not  great at it but find myself itching to pick up a charcoal pencil wherever I am.  I took a Gesture class this weekend for very short poses and it was so stressful--trying to capture someone in 1-3 minutes.  Still very terrible at that.  Today I was working on my Icon and had to wait an hour to let some glue dry before gilding so I sketched my friends back who is doing an awesome huge oil floral (much prettier than this!).  About 40 min. of doodling in charcoal and pastel.  Not great but fun and she asked to keep it, hah!

I'd want to keep it, too, Lynn.   Lovely work!!

The back of her shirt looks so satiny.

Mea, Susan, Lisa, Jay and Val and Natalie--glad you like this one.  It was my fastest and smallest but there is something appealing about the scene to me.  Here is tonight's life drawing.  I was warned that I would have some unsuccessful nights and this was definitely one.  I just didn't connect with the model or the pose.  He got a cramp and had to cut the pose to 35 min. instead of 60 so that really messed with my head as I hadn't finished adjusting limbs etc.  Almost didn't post but am doing so as encouragement to anyone doing this.  It doesn't always work out.  I still feel comfortable with female models.  They are easier for me.

Lynn,

That's really pretty good considering the circumstances.  Love his hair.  Can see how he'd get a cramp in that position.
