Look before you paint
Trying to get a likeness...
I've a little time before I need to go off and run this morning’s Croydon Life Drawing Group session - although I need to be careful as when I've got plenty of time is usually when I end up being late! Anyway, during the week I was making some studies of Ursula for some paintings I'm working on using charcoal and chalk and actually looking for once. I didn't manage to get a good likeness - Ursula thought they were more like caricatures - and didn't get the lighting quite right when I photographed them, but I'm happy with the results.
