There are several places to draw and paint from figures in Portland, and on Sunday I went to PNCA (Portland Northwest College of Art). The model, Gabrielle, is an opera singer and performance artist and that showed in the drama of her poses. I sketched in ink on paper for the one and two minute poses, then switched to acrylic on a 14" x 18" canvas for the long pose, about two hours. She wore a hat, tall boots and knit fingerless gloves. This is not a romantic nude, but that's the way I saw her!
