napping nelson and naked dude

I painted Nelson tonight while he napped on the couch. He didn't quite stay still so I never figured out how his hand was curled up under his face.

The other pic is from last week's class. It was a 40 minute pose, but I still couldn't manage to finish it.

I started my watercolor class at SVA last week. I'm not used to painting humans so they're a bit sloppy and weird.
Today I decided to practice by painting Tricia. We did it at two different times of the day, which screwed up shadows and I ended up giving Tricia a swarthy complexion. I also had difficulty painting details and defining her face. At one point she looked cross-eyed so I blotted it out.

Thank you Tricia for being so patient.
