Ahhhhhhhhh! Today I finally got back into drawing! I taught a pastel class at the studio today, and, since I only have 2 students in the class, I gave myself permission to draw while they were working - it just isn't helpful, I don't believe, to stand over their shoulders the whole time they're working. I didn't want to do something persnickety, so I decided to do a fairly simple figure study of the model I photographed most recently. She was terrific to work with - open and comfortable in her body and terrific about sharing of herself. I got some wonderful pictures of her but hadn't had a chance to work from them yet, so I could feel a little bit of excitement today as I glanced through the shots to figure out which to work from.
