I attended another drawing session and although I was really hungry, had a nice evening drawing the model Barbara. There was a moment halfway through the night that I attempted a couple of portraits and was completely filled with frustration and agitation. I've included this hiccup below. I then changed my focus to a couple of sketches of the model's foot. I am really happy with the results and think they are my strongest moments of the evening.
An example of one of the lousy portraits where I began to resort to "object drawing" and the fruitless pursuit of "capturing reality". I lost most sense of nowness.
