Years ago I took life drawing classes. I could count the number of times I got a good painting on one hand, but I liked it because it was very engaging, if also very challenging.
In this virtual class we work from a photo of a model, and I have all week to draw them and think about the painting. All of which really helps!
In my classes long ago I found I got better results with some models than with others--they took poses or had attitudes I responded to. I apparently like drawing this woman.
