When I sketch or paint a live model I feel as though pins and needles are surging through my body. It's a little uncomfortable but exciting at the same time. I love working in charcoal ~these were quick sketches that express the mood of the sitters. Though I don't think the guy was really that angry! More to come.

One of my favorite artists is Degas. This exercise was freeing yet challenging for me since I tend not to draw very loosely. I sketched this ballerina using varied techniques. I am taking this idea into my future work. My mantra of late ~ loosen up!
