Anne Marie at Richard's

Well, I finally decided to bite the bullet re. acrylics; I needed something for studies that would allow me to work as quickly as with pastel, but was more portable. So I bought a bunch, and Saturday morning took them, brushes, and one 20"x30" canvas to Richard's Saturday morning life drawing session to see what would happen. The sessions tend to go along 8 three minute gestural poses followed by a single long pose of 2 1/2 hours. So everything went onto one canvas. Then I took the result home and tarted it up....
  I hope Anne Marie forgives me for this :)
