Sketching at Sullivan Munce

I recently started attending a weekly (almost) open drawing/painting session at the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center.  We sketch from a live model.  I would say that the majority of artists in this group are there to practice portraiture, rather than full nude figure.  Therefore, the model is usually clothed and much of it is long pose.  We all divide the model fee among us, so... the more, the merrier (cheaper).  A couple of the models are my coworkers from the hospital.

Here are my Thursday night sketches:

"Reclining Girl"    black and white charcoal on gray paper
"Kassandra"    black and white charcoal on gray paper

"Stephanie Painting Greg's Portrait"     Ink and watercolor
"Sharla"   11 x 14  Oil on Senso canvas

 It's so much fun to connect and paint with other artists!
