I went to a live drawing session yesterday. The model was young, gorgeous, and able to sit still for 20 minutes throughout a three-hour session. Her face had an expression as though she were taking the world in and making plans for it.
It was a good work session and I came home with several good possibilities for portraits. I worked a few more hours on this one today, lifting color out and repainting parts until I was satisfied that I caught some of her beauty and personality.
