More Hanna

Hanna is sick today, I thought it would be a good time to catch up on posting.

These are all 24"x36" on Kraft paper, using NuPastel. They are pretty quick studies - usually the order of 20-40 minutes. We've been doing 4 hour work periods maybe twice a week, broken into a series of 20 minute session - generally repetions/variations of the same pose. They were done in various sessions over the last two weeks.

The studies themselves are preliminary to more finished work, which I hope to start once the weather is warm enough to open the windows. Using turps & linseed oil this time of year is not a great idea! But it gives me a chance to get to know the model in more depth than usual. It also (I hope) gives the model the chance to both be comfortable, and contribute to the work.
