LAST NIGHT the our model was late so Charles volunteered to sit. Although I was expecting to draw a young, muscly model, I had a lot of fun painting Charles. It's been a while since I've done a portrait of anyone out of their 20's... or clothed.
It's nice to see all the nudes I've been doing translated, when the subject changed. I've always thought drawing from the model was the ultimate skill-builder. If you understand and can recreate the architecture, texture, and colors of the figure. You can draw anything.
I was actually a little disappointed when Francisco arrived and my time with Charles was cut short. Anyway, Thank you Charles for posing!
