emilie,

thanks so much for posting the student work in progress. i have noticed some of the full color figure paintings have a reduced scale drawing and value/color study taped to the side of the canvas. at this stage is the artist still working from the live model or exclusively from the drawing and value/color study?

The drawings and color studies are done in preparation for the paintings and the students are working from the live model the entire time. The color study is referred to throughout the process to help with color and value choices.
