Last night I joined a group of local artists that meet on thursday nights to draw or paint portraits from a model. There is no instruction, just a group getting together to do what they love. The atmosphere was inspiring, the model superb and everyone made me, the newcomer, feel very welcome. I had a great painting night and could barely sleep last night because I had so much fun. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the gentleman who modeled for us, so just a working title for this painting for now.
