So we had our fifth painting session finally (last week the model cancelled so we called off class). I could really tell the difference in taking a week off. Not that I can really paint to begin with. Here's the results. Warning. Visible nipple approaching. You may want to have children leave the room. They may turn into stone if they see this.

I finished Mattie's necklace, but haven't blocked yet. I'll block it with the citrine job and hopefully will be able to post BOTH ITEMS tomorrow. Woohoo. Tatting double-header!

Scroll down for naked painting........














So, I'm not Rubens.

Don't ever tell me you are not good and not a full fledged artist. YOU DID GOOD! I remember my days in figure drawing. Except I went to a conservative Liberal arts college and couldn't do nude drawings. SHUCKS ;)

ANYHOO....you did a real nice job. Good contrast and use of color.

Now see Erin....YOU are a TRUE artist. I have never done anything like that before. I wouldn't even know how to begin. So now you are in the same catagory as Mark...an ARTIST....I just paint tiny things. But what you and Mark do is real artwork...sighing here...so much I wish I could do...but I am human and God didn't give me alot of gifts.

Fantastic Erin! I've never been good with portraits or figures so I appreciate your talent immensely!

(g)One of our student workers did nude modeling for the art classes here. We knew that because our very obnoxious secretary at the time loudly questioned her about it and made sure everyone knew. She is now working elsewhere. LOL!
