Going Out, Staying In

All dressed up and nowhere to go!

Not such a nice day today and feeling a bit wabbit from yesterday's exertions walking the length of Troon beach. It was so nice with the sun shining and inspired by Lisa's Seaside Studios blog a walk along the strand was just what Doctor David ordered. But today we both needed to conserve our energy before Hurricane Harry comes to visit on Monday. So it was a day for staying in and doing a bit of Life Drawing from a real live drop dead gorgeous model:

"Jacqueline #1", charcoal on paper, 59x43cm.

"Jacqueline #2", charcoal on paper, 59x43cm.

"Jacqueline #3", charcoal on paper, 59x43cm.

For number #1 J was up for it and patiently held the pose for a good fifteen minutes. Number #2 she needed a rest (and another cup of coffee!). But for number #3 she was feeling weary so we hardly spent any time on it  - about five minutes. It will be enough for me to use for future painting studies.

Which is what we went on to do in the afternoon. But I'll keep that for next time.

Hope y'all had as good a weekend and are raring to go for another week's artmaking.

Buona fortuna!

It's good to stroll along the beach and blow the cobwebs away isn't it. I hope the weather isn't too bad for you, I'd hoped we'd seen the back of the worst here in the UK.
