Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Two Different Figurative Studies

Bringing out the nude form on a dark background is an interesting challenge, as is drawing the face upside down.

As I'm working away, after awhile I forget the model is totally naked there in front of us. It's just charcoal on paper, looking for the shadows and then chalk to find the highlights on her form.
