Starting to work with the models and having someone model through each pose for you is a very one of a kind process. I find this very calming and soothing to my mind to be able to sit in a room with just music playing and focus on painting. Which is all surprising because this. was something I always found so frustrating in high school, and drawing bodies always made me frustrated because I could never get it right enough for me to be able to call it a finished piece but this time I feel like each painting got better and better. Something that really helped me get this far was the 10 second poses in the beginning, because it really let me focus on loosening up.
