Lust Facial Expression, Life Painting

We will have just two life painting sessions in my studio this month, and the first one was yesterday. I was surprised how quickly I pumped out the above sketch, and haven't decided if I am going to work on this more or start something new next week.

Today I just worked on the ecstatic expression of the middle figure. Still plenty of work to do, but I am getting there. Of course, I can't work on this without thinking of the ultimate ecstatic expression on Bernini's "Ecstasy of St. Theresa." This may be my all time favorite sculpture.
