Monday Drawing Class - Gina with Hat

"Gina with Hat"
9 " x 12"
Charcoal and Conte

This is phase one of drawing Gina at art class this morning. We are to bring the piece back to continue working with shading next Monday. Bob moved her nose a smidge to the left, and I see now that the mouth and right eye need rework. When our instructor was at Atelier in Florence, they would work for three weeks on a piece, so surely I can refine this for another three hours! Gina wore the most wonderful green hat with feathers. With her lovely bone structure and natural ability to pose, she is a delight to draw. Another very satisfying class with friends.

What a goon I am! I never saw your final image. This is wonderful! Gina would be so pleased if she had commissioned you to draw her portrait.
