In September 2010, I had the chance to attend a live model drawing session. The image above is the original drawing.

I've redrawn the sketch from that day several times and altered it each time. I shortened the body and gave it more of a curve. The above was a study in shade and form. I used this figure in the final painting for my up-coming exhibition at the Rogue Art and Music Festival.
I hope everyone is having a good Sunday. We've got sunshine and spring-like weather, so I'll be out on the bicycle today.
