Anita Relaxing

Alas, I'm going to be losing Anita soon - she's a delight to work with, and after several sessions, I feel like I'm just beginning to "see" her. Plus she's quite good at creating striking up interesting poses like this one, relaxed but somewhat intense, and holding it well. (These things are not easy). And I could spend hours just working on her hair....

Some Oldies....

Yesterday was not a great day. I would have much rather spent the day drawing Lisa, but alas, a stomach bug intervened. So I spent the day photographing work from this spring - I'm so far behind! - and I'll try to get some of the photos up over the next couple of days. These were done at the Wednesday DASL life sessions. Both are 24"x36", pastel on Kraft paper.

Bob Rossing....

Arlene said (in effect) I was channeling my inner Bob Ross when I did this this Saturday. And I quite agree - happy trees, happy skies, happy laneway. It was a nice day.
It's a plein air pastel done on the lane behind the house on Fabriano pastel paper from NSCAD, the size is metric (yucch), 50x65 cm I think.
