Chill


Finally completed Chill.  It has been one of those works where every time I would look at it I would see yet one more little thing that needed to be resolved. I'm sure I've been a bit of a perfectionist here and there regarding this painting, but some works require a great deal of polishing.


Below is a pastel life drawing.  I took advantage of a local art school's open studio session on Friday.  I plan to go at least twice a month.  It was so nice to work from a live model and brush up on basic drawing skills.  Even though I paint pretty much every day I'm guilty of not taking time to sketch from life enough. I guess it's like practicing scales if your a guitarist.
