Open Studio Session in July 2014 at Warehouse 521. Session begins at 9am with 5 or 6, two minute gesture drawings to help you loosen up. We began our first 25 minute pose around 10 and the above images were taken every 25 minutes at the model breaks with my phone.You can see that the photos look nothing like the colors I saw in life!! See above Open Studio dates for my studio.
