I’m finding it difficult to write about anything lately. Not that the blog is focus of what I’m doing but it’s nice to have something to say. So I’ll keep it to the point, today I chose another simple pose this time a female.

I chose this pose because the gesture poses seem much too contrived and lack real emotion. Those poses are nice for gesture drawings but I want a bit more reality. I also chose this model because of her skin tone. She has a bit of a pale, natural complexion and after yesterday’s painting with a tanned model it turned out a bit orange.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it.
