This is a quick little 12 x 12 painting done at my buddy Dave Wilson's apartment where he's been hosting a weekly life painting session. Each week we take turns modeling for each other to keep the cost down. We paint until the light changes too much, which now is about 8pm or so and we start around 5-ish. I was thinking about how Robert Henri could do these fast little paintings so well while I was working on this.
