Kitty was a new model, and as soon as she started with the pose several of us asked, “Are you sure you can hold that?” I have been struggling somewhat with the full-figure poses lately, feeling like they are good for me to hone my drawing skills, but I was in the mood to paint a head/shoulders view tonight. This was going to be a challenging viewpoint for me, but I was up for it. After a little while, though, Kitty’s elbow kept creeping up and up, completely covering her face. I packed up my stuff and went home early, so this is just a quick painting from the session.
