I haven't done this in a while, figure painting from life. It was really fun! Took around 2.5 hours perhaps, we spent like 15 minutes just trying to figure out a pose.

New work!

I bought a watercolor moleskine sketchbook and hope to fill it by the end of this semester. The paper isn't as good as what I'm used to; using watercolor on it isn't joyful, so I'm going to switch to more opaque mediums.

Recent work

I feel like I had a productive summer, especially compared to last year. School started this past week; unfortunately I'm not taking any art classes. I'm feeling frustrated by my lack of progress when it comes to figure drawing, so I plan to attend all the sessions I can this semester.

I went to paint with friends today at Pao-Hua Buddhist temple, rainy and overcast at first but then a hint of sunlight broke through.
