every year at this time, the life drawing and portrait groups around here stop for a couple of months, and nothing resumes until the end of January- beginning of February.
here are some from the final sessions
a 5 minute pencil sketch
and a 30 minute oil sketch
and from the portrait group at Richmond Art Supplies, two one hour oil studies, I usually like to alter positions if I do a second one... but there wasn't enough room this time!
