I am a creature of habit. I go into the studio and stand in the same place, setting up my tools and easel. Today I decided ahead of time to move from that spot! And then I took Nupastels to work on my Mi-Tientes paper. So things were different for me - enough to throw me off a bit, I guess.
The pose was chosen by Robert and he worked at the model's feet so lots of foreshortening problems for him to work on. We were allowed to choose what pose we wanted today, and were going to do two poses in the 3 hours but ended up with just this one so we could spend more time on it. Maybe next time will be 2-3 poses instead of one single pose.
Not horrible but lots to work on, including how to just leave the pastel alone and layer the colors instead of blending them. I liked Steve's (our model today) reddish hair and that's why I chose the colors to start.
