Barbara

Barbara from our session last week. 

This was done on a larger format than my previous portrait sketches (9x12) and allowed a bit more room to lay in a design.  I really enjoyed this one.  I tried to focus on not using black for darks and really explore what color I saw. I found there were a lot of lost and found edges in her hair so it was fun to play with the brush strokes to imitate the subtle change of light that I saw.

Casey




The Lubbock Figure Drawing Group went down to the Downtown Art Market at the Tornado gallery and drew Casey today. If you haven't been to the DAM, if you're in Lubbock stop by some time, it's a great farmers/art communal market.

It was hot, but we had a great time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and all who showed up. This was our last session of the day, 1 hour pose.
