Here it is. Quick and dirty but fun to do.
And then today we did several quick color studies. This was an hour pose.
Until today's class I was still thinking about quitting but I realized today how great this class has been for me. It's helping answer a question I've had for a long time - can I really paint or am I just a standard fill-in-the-colors/copying from a picture kind of painter. Am I any good? Or am I just faking it? Since I haven't had any real formal training, I've always been so intimidated by real painters. And this class is being taught by a real serious nationally recognized talented painter. If anyone can answer that question, she can. And so far, she's given me some pretty good feedback. I'm a novice painter but I have something and that's good enough for me! :)
