figure sketches

My contribution to the figure sketching session, featuring Jessica. This is really a white sheet of paper, but when I went to adjust the levels these colors showed up - so we'll go with it. She was an excellent model. Hope to sketch and/or paint her again some day.
(BTW, not much from me recently as I came down with the stomach flu on Thursday. Finally feeling like a human again today.)

Glad you're better! And I love these drawings.

As I said that evening, this was on the upslope of my effort ... and then it went down hill after that. But then, as Deanne said when we were leaving (very profoundly), "It's all practice! And it's not as though the Art Police will arrest you if you have a bad night."

(Thanks Jim ... and to answer a previous question you asked, yes you can apply the oil painting techniques that I used in the 4 step mini portrait to your acrylic paintings as well.)
