daily painting | marie

Another interesting evening with the Tue night figure drawing group in Oakland! I sketched Marie with my new favorite medium, water-soluble graphite in sepia. She was a quiet girl, and I enjoy experimenting with simple lines, shadows, pools of color. I think perhaps I capture more of my own mood than the model’s and I was feeling very sad about family illnesses, separations and upsets. But creating art is transporting and healing.
