Mission: Portrait Sketch

Now that I am focusing so much on landscape painting, I don’t want to let my figure drawing skills get rusty!  To stay in shape I’ve been going in to the GCA once or twice a week to practice short pose portrait sketching.  Here are a few of my favorites from the last few months:
