Another 40 minute pose at my weekly figure drawing group. Really happy with the skin tones and their variations in the light and shadow in this piece. As always, part of me wishes I would have had about 15 more minutes to refine things further - the 40 minutes go by so fast. On the other hand, I like how the short time limit forces you to think quickly and capture the essence of the pose - like sketching with paint.
