My type of party.

Seated model on the lawn.


My favorite type of party is one where I get to draw and work with models. I had an opportunity to hangout with a bunch of artists and a model in Virginia Beach Saturday. I don’t have too much to say about this piece. It’s my favorite piece from the night though. The model is actually wearing clothes for a change. At least for this piece.



Burlesque night

Porcelain poses with work from our first session.

It was burlesque night at the Norfolk Drawing Group Tuesday night. Porcelain is a North Carolina performer, and she traveled to Virginia to work with us again.

I should have worked faster. I really needed to work on this piece for another hour. My non-traditional approach to figure studies usually works for me or it can work against me. I obviously should have finished the hand, but I trust that I’ll work with her again. My next piece will be better. I would love to paint her one day.
