This is my effort from art class the last week of the dancer pose. I erased and redrew my picture 3-4 times, totally unsure of what I wanted. Finally wound up with this, but difficult as always with life drawing, as each time the model would get up and sit down again there would be so many changes. The flow of her skirt was never the same, nor was the foot she was sitting on.

On WetCanvas we have a monthly Pastel Challenge where someone posts a reference photo of their choice, and everyone who participates is supposed to paint their version of it. I loved this month's reference, and this is my version of it which I painted this Sunday. This is a "fast and loose" painting which I only spent about 30-40 minutes on, but I'm happy with it.
And I found out from the person who posted the original photo that the photo was taken on Prince Edward Island. The bridge to PEI is only minutes from our Canadian farm and I have been to PEI many times, so it made me feel even more connected to this picture. :-)

She did not start the long pose until almost 8:30 PM, so this was what I got done in the last hour of class.
