Here is an older portrait from the weekly drawing sessions. The drawing sessions sometimes have an international flavor, and on that particular day our model was a graceful, dignified, and colorful woman from Africa. It's been a while but some dusty corner of my memory seems to think she was from the Congo. Charcoal pencils are probably what I use most at the drawing sessions, but this was one of those times I was glad I brought along the pastels!
