Suite E Life Drawing Session - Sustained Pose with Caitlin

Portrait of Caitlin from Life Session
So sad that there are only a few sessions left for the season, I am going to miss it!  Last night was a sustained session with Caitlin, one of my favourite models.  She is amazingly still and oozes grace, very inspirational.

I would have loved even just another 15 minutes, of course there is never enough time and I barely got the darker values in her hair started and time was up.  It is funny because I used to draw much faster, but of course then I would get to the end of the night and notice an eye sliding off, slow is definitely better.

Today I started another drawing from life from one of the images from my beloved Charles Bargue Drawing book which I am slowly working my way through.  This book will keep me busy for so many years to come. 

I plan to do a drawing a day to get my drawing chops in shape for my upcoming class  Drawing From Life for the Beginner  at Port Moody Art Center starting June 1.  There are still a few spots left if you would like to join me you can register at http://register.asapconnected.com/courses.aspx?coursegroupid=9898 if you are interested.  Please register early as registration closes prior to start date of class.
