life drawing workshop 2

I did this one in pastels. About 2.5 hours as I had a bit of a funny tummy with the antibiotics I was on so I left early.

Interesting to look at it later and see what could be done better. The RHS end of the mouth. Close, more blending in some part. But is is threeD and was fun.

Last weeks' one looks a little stif, but he wasn't IRL

portrait workshop

The local art shop is run by two artists. They have just started portrait workshops, no tutor, on Saturday afternoons for 4 hours. At $20 it's a great opportunity to sketch, paint from live models.

The first weekend I just used graphite to try and get my eye in again.
The second weekend I used pastels. Messy fun.
