I had only had a chance to draw Julie one other time when I was attending the Open Figure Sessions at Manifest Gallery's Drawing Studio. It was fun then. It was a bit less fun this time. Why? The pose really threw me (Charles says he is going to build on the poses each week so they are going to get more difficult as the 10 weeks continues - oh boy!!!). The twist in the torso, the left leg coming towards me and the right leg less foreshortened was what I spent the majority of the time working to get right. I wish we had 6 hours to work on a pose, not just 3...but maybe next time I am the only studen who shows up, I'll suggest that! (It was a gorgeous Indian Summer day - warm, sunny, brilliant! - so the other students were playing hookey.)
Sorry I did not have more time to capture Julie's face more adequately.
Julie has the greatest hair - wild, curly, reddish-blonde hair with streaks of color added in yellows. I would love to have the personality to carry off that hairstyle :)
