Nude #1185

email me to purchase for $200.
 Both of these gesture sketches were painted during a 25 minute pose. I haven't been painting from a live model much lately. Not since last fall, about 4 months ago. I really haven't gone that long without painting from a model since, I don't know when. I am very
rusty and that is interesting to see how it's just like when you play an instrument.... you are
in fine tune with the instrument when you practice regularly. I will be diligent about attendance at my weekly sessions because I don't like feeling rusty.
