Life Drawing Session - Caitlyn Sustained Pose

Life Drawing Portrait - Caitlyn
It has been months since I have been able to get to a life drawing session (sigh) so it was so nice to get back to drawing from a live model last night! 

Sadly I have not had much time for drawing anything lately as have been busy painting.  Drawing is like exercise, if you don't do it daily or at least regularly you get flabby....or in this case, not so accurate ;)

So rather than crop the drawing as I usually do...I left some distracting objects all around the portrait.  Sneaky right?  Even with my lack of current practice though, I still see a huge improvement from last year in my drawing skills so just like with exercise, there is "muscle memory" so every little bit of effort adds up.
