Sketch Club

Every Monday evening from 6:30-9:30 pm I attend the Sketch Club at Saratoga Arts in Saratoga Springs, NY. This is an open studio with a live model doing a single 3 hour pose, usually nude but occasionally in costume. 

And every now and then the model doesn't show up.

This was the case last Monday. But instead of packing up and going home we asked for a volunteer and fellow artist Kelly Smith came to our rescue. Above is my contribution: Kelly, oil on paper, about 12x16", 2 1/2 hr pose.

The Sketch Club has a website where the artists' works are posted every week: There's also information there for anyone who is interested in attending.
