well...this weekend I practiced my artwork like a long-time dieter eating a fully loaded gourmet hot dog...with relish!! I wonder...is there anyone who is NOT familiar with Degas (below)? He was a master not only of color and composition...but also of painting a person...and a piece of a person. That's what I was practicing here - painting a Fashion sketch ala Degas! This is my first attempt. It was fun...I think I'll give it another go!
