What a wonderful gift it is when a photo shoot for a portrait goes smoothly and on top of that everyone involved has fun! The precious family I worked with last night was able to find a great balance between silliness and amazing cooperation. All together, it equaled some sweet genuine smiles and great photographs to use as references for the paintings.

I recently enjoyed studying the figure with a wonderful group of students at OCAF. We had a variety of long and short poses given to us by two of my most talented models. What a treat. My examples posted show two different drawing approaches that depend on the length of the pose.
