Every Thurs nite, our sketch group has a local model who poses for a little over an hour. Although I enjoy the challenge of painting a model, I do not consider myself to be a portrait painter. To me these sessions represent 'inside plein aire,' just sketches, nothing more.
I've posted here before. Here's an example from the last session - acrylic, 12 x 16 on repurposed canvas panel.
