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.
