Today's life painting session
I hesitate to tell you that I struggled today, but it is what it is. My contact lenses bothered me, I ran out of white and had to resort to a tube of Permabla (that blue-ish white paint...some people just love that stuff..I find it odd--I don't even know why I had it with me). I painted her hand four times and rubbed it out four times. In the end I did a quick sketch of her because I so thoroughly enjoyed her look. I worried some that the scratch-y sound of my vine charcoal might annoy my painting compatriots. scratch-scratch-scratch. You know, after uploading painting #2 it almost appears like her hand is in shoved in a pocket....it nearly works. Note to self: get the hand in correctly at the beginning.
