weekend warriors

I took a workshop with a local painter I think is terrific, Randall Sexton. This was figure painting, which I gave up over a year ago, maybe two years. I had felt very frustrated with getting the myriad of colors that exist in a few square inches of skin – light to dark, one color to another, as well as reflected light, blemishes, etc etc. He somehow made it seem do-able again. Here’s one of my unfinished sketches, background left for later. I don’t know that I will ever finish it – and, how can you, once the session is over and the model has left? I guess that’s another one of the frustrations with this subject! Oh well, it’s fun in the meantime!
