Figure Drawings for Fun

In recent years, I've been attending live-model sessions around town (mostly organized by Jennifer Fabos and her gang). I love going to these uninstructed sessions- there is often a theme such as "Day of the Dead" or "Pagan Rites".

Christina Hendricks as Joan Holloway from Mad Men

A recent illustration, done "just because" I like the character and the show Mad Men. I tried to capture those beautiful, glaring eyes as well as the glaring curves.  Watercolor and colored pencil on 16" x 20" illustration board.
