Reclining figure study

I painted this a couple of weeks ago with our small but faithful figure painting group here at Disney.

Fechin and Leyendecker sketches...

I had a chance several weeks ago to visit the J.C. Leyendecker exhibit at the Fullerton Museum of Art. I was so impressed. That level of drawing skill is rare! I did a couple of sketches there at the museum. The large sketch is from a Fechin book I have.

Head Study

A group of us at Disney get together and paint from the model every other week. Here's one from a few sessions ago. I'm concentrating on the drawing more.
