Hipbone Studio is a great way to spend a winter Wednesday afternoon (it's always warm for the nude models) to draw or paint from life. Emilie, our model, was lovely in a young Marlene Dietrich kind of way. I especially liked the umbrella, walking nude in the rain is so Portland! As usual, we started with one minute warm ups, then 5 minutes, 15 minutes then some longer poses. I used micron pens for sketching, then added acrylic paint.
