Workshop Day Two


I can't say enough about how much I got out of the workshop.
 Anatomy is so important.
So is observation, angles, planes...
And a good pair of bifocals. 
(Will be making appointment this week.)
Also having your materials organized and prepared.
I dropped my pastels, that were in pizza boxes, in foam sections, 
(which work really well in my studio, not for travel), 
and they got mixed up.
(Will be looking into a new storage system.)
This is my pastel on 18x24 wallis paper from day two 
of the Judy Carducci workshop. 
I needed to stop fifteen minutes before to leave 
the hands and bottom looser, or need fifteen minutes more 
work time to tighten it up some.
Another thing to learn.
