On the third day, we had an all day pose. In the first picture, I am working out the drawing. After correcting a few errors, I completed the painting as can be seen in the second picture. I think I did pretty well with this. I certainly learned the importance of slowing down and looking closely at the model and getting the proportions and angels right at the start - so much easier than trying to correct them later. With this taken care of, I was able to go ahead and add color - warm and cool. This is as far as I got that day.

I recently attended a six day workshop at the Long Island City studio of Max Ginsburg. On the first day, after watching Max's demonstration, we attempted two head studies.
In the first one, I think that I failed to capture the model's thin and frail look. It is all a learning experience, though. I rubbed this one out.
My second attempt was much more successful, I think. She was delicate and I think I got that on the second try. I was learning something every minute that I was working with Max.
