Figure drawing session

Had a great time tonight, generally pretty happy with what I accomplished.  I really improved my 5 min sketches and tried to get as much of a complete body as I could while still adding some shading and value.  I took an entire 25 minute pose and focused only on the face.  I really need to practice faces and while I’m not super happy with the end result, it’s a step in the right direction.  I made sure that I didn’t do any pencil sketching or outlining and focused on using the colors and values to define the shape.  I did sketch out the last pose of the night and then painted under it, and then turned off my sketch lines.  Worked out pretty well as it’s easier to get the proportions right if I do it that way.
