More Figures or...Trying To Retain My Sanity
What a struggle it has been this summer to work for an extended period of time in the studio. Not to bore you with details of a frenzied mom, but sometimes life can be ridiculously busy.
Oh, I can complain and moan about it (see paragraph above!) or I can figure out how to make it work.
My solution for now is to continue developing a series of nudes from our weekly figures sessions with a live model. This is a great way to experiment with materials and technique, as well as develop better drawing skills. Because these aren't necessarily finished paintings, I can work for a few hours and put them away. If I end up with a gem or two, even better!
