 Charcoal, 1 hr
Oil, 2hrs
Had a brilliant day with a new model, Amanda, who was young and buzzing with energy and quite delightful!
We had two 15min and half a dozen 30sec warm ups, which are a total disgrace and not for public scrutiny. I was happy enough with these two pieces, although, do you notice that I have concentrated on the head again? And she had a stunning figure....didn't we all at her age?

Woohoo! I can't believe I actually got to Hertford on Saturday. I haven't been since October, but where the heck have those five months gone! Needless to say I had a brilliant day. It started off disappointingly, when the promised 'new' model failed to show because she was unwell. Can't be helped and I wish her a speedy recovery. This was soon forgotten once we got started.
The warm up exercises were of Penny in her clothes while the place warmed up, then we had a few quick poses, only one of which is fit to be seen here!
Once I got the paint out I got into the swing of it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hopefully it was the kick up the butt I need to get going in the studio!
Next month is Hertford Art Society Annual Open Exhibition hand in day......the best day of the year....where I get to stay and assist with the proceedings. Next life day then is in May!
