Gesture Sketches from our Tuesday Figure Drawing

We do short poses every Tuesday evening here at Patris Studio.  I wanted to try something different, so I took these old blue pieces of mat board, mixed up a pile of flesh tone paint for the light side, and a flesh color for the shadow side and one pile of dark color and painted these 2 min- 15 min. gestures.  So much FUN!!!!

Portrait Study - Lare the musician

3-hour portrait study I did during our Friday POP UP session a couple of weeks ago.
