Jake is a great model. When I was in the class this last Friday, the warm up poses weren't the quickly-changing gestures I expected, but one very long--8 or 10 minutes, maybe--and very slow movement during which he went from bending at his waist to his arms stretched above his head, then out wide and back down. He held a scarf in his hands that was stretched taut between his arms the entire time. His body was twisting into different positions through all this and was full of a contained tension. Pretty cool!

Vicki, This is a wonderful life study. I especially like the way you've incorporated the studio environment and the figure in the background without making it look too busy. Really great piece!
