Life Drawing Workshop: Lizz with Aura

Lizz seated with Aura: Graham Smith
I sat down and started drawing right away, trying not to make too much noise. I hadn't noticed the workshop started an hour earlier than usual when I walked in! There were a lot of talented artists drawing and painting Lizz that night, and they all had a 20 minute head start! We all had some fun drawing and meeting new friends.

Lizz - detail: Graham Smith
To me, no drawing of Lizz is complete without drawing a halo around her. I don't know why, but it simply must be there. Below, is the first drawing where her "Aura" appears. It was drawn a few years ago at the Ubiquitous Bee Studio in San Diego.

Lizz with Aura 2008: Graham Smith
After all the drawing and talking, a few brave artists ventured into San Diego's "less popular area's", where some secret Asian noodle shops are hidden. The dumpling soup was just as good as promised! Afterward, we agreed not to linger in the parking lot, the whole area looked kind of shady.
