Yanca

                     She is the same model as the drawing I did for the Strathmore ad. Her name is Yanca and she is 11 years old. What a beauty ! She's posed for me and my artists friends a couple of times and she's quite good at sitting still. One time we set up a labtop in front of her on a box and she watched an animated movie. The painting above is 6 by 8 inches, it seems that something so small should be fast to finish, but they can take just as long as a life size painting for me.
                           This is a drawing I did of Yanca from life at one of our model sessions at my trade st studio in Winston Salem. I used heavy weight Rives paper in cream with a Sanguine pastel pencil, the size is 16 by 12.
