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.

Recent Figure Studies in Charcoal and Chalk

We've had many overcast or rainy days here lately, so I delayed shooting my most recent set of life drawings until there was better natural light. I finally got a little sunshine time for photographing my work. Here is the pick of the litter.

Each were
20 minute studies from the live model at Open Studio. You can purchase these and other figure studies here.

Lovely charcoal drawings, Diana. Hate those days that you can't photograph but enjoyed the drawings. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Amazing work Diana. Figure studies are not easy...you have mastered it.

Thank you, Hilda. I don't feel like I've mastered it at all but I do love working toward that.
