Life Drawing

Today is the last day of life drawing at WIFAS before we take a month off. There is just not enough attendance to sustain it for the month of June so for the next few Saturdays I’m going to have to figure out something else to do, but I have some contact information and we may transition into landscapes.

Sometimes you just “see” a pose, or rather when you look at it you understand how to render it almost intuitively. The pose above was like that, so I just went for it with as little line as possible just getting in the most simple elegant shape of the model.

The pose above and below were wonderful and I became so frustrated that I couldn’t capture them as well as I wanted to.

The last drawing was an experiment. I have these Conte chalk sticks in my supplies and I figured I would use them and have some fun with value and form… It didn’t go so well so I think I will stick with line to start off every drawing now, then transition into form and value.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it.
