It was such a beautiful day that I decided to take my sweet little Etsy-purchased Strikebook made with watercolor paper outside and start a couple of paintings. One is finished and one is in-progress. The book pages are 3 inches x 4 inches. It is such a cute little book!

My daughter and I went back to the Coppini Academy Thursday evening to do another life-drawing session.
This was another round of short poses: 15 1-minute, 10 3-minute, 5 5-minute, one 10-minute, and one 15-minute. The model was really good because he presented some very challenging poses. I stuck with charcoal on all but one pose. I'm still trying to decide which tool I prefer for the quick poses.
Here are a few examples of my work from this session:
(drawn over clear gessoed paper...don't ask me why cause I couldn't tell you!)
After we left Coppini we went home, changed, and went to the gym and did 45-minutes of cardio.
We felt pretty self-righteous afterward!
