Session with model, 2 portraits

At a figure drawing group typically things get started with quick 1 minute sketches, then poses are held for 5 minutes. Finally models hold 20 minute poses or longer. Sometimes a pose is held,and models are given breaks and then they resume the same pose. The longer the pose the better for most artist! We typically have 20 minute poses to gather as much visual information as possible. Here are 2 6 by 8" portraits directly painted with oils on small panels.
