Figure study. Lydia Host daily painting a day 6x6

These are some oil sketches on gessoed board from a figure drawing class last saturday. I really love working like this, its so about the pattern of the light. Like yesterday's bottle, I could go back in and clarify these images, but I like the feel of them as they are, and there is a very real chance that I would ruin them by going back in to 'fix' them. In fact the one that looks like a marble statue was like the others, but I tried to adjust somethings and had to change the approach completely. I guess they only work for me as the recording of a moment kind of thing...an extended gesture drawing.
