From the Art Student's League. Boy this stuff is really "use it or lose it." I notice that if I skip a day or two and can't make it to a figure session then the following time I try to draw I feel a bit "rusty" and not as sharp.

This weeks TNT night was brought to you by the lovely Elle Emenope. I'm trying to get better at pen and ink. The permanence of it is a bit daunting but the more I do it (suck at it) the more comfortable I will get with it. I also need to watch my page placement closely. I hate, hate, hate when the figure gets cut off!
Charles and Herc owning trivia while I sit there uselessly.
The painting class I signed up for is run more like a workshop, no lectures, just feedback here and there from the teacher for folks who already seem to know what they're doing, so I think I'll treat it as a 3 hour long drawing workshop. This first drawing is from this class. The rest are from Spring St and the friday night ASL workshop.
I'm looking to get into painting but I think it might be cheaper for me to buy all the supplies and dedicate a small corner of my house to painting still lifes, and just do that until I'm ready for prime time. Anyone know any good oil painting books? I know you're supposed to start in monochrome burnt umber and work out your values first, but that's about all I know about painting. Well, let the self study begin!

This was a fun night! We had two models and there was an art raffle and some very interesting performances! I'd like to go back over these with more color and really make them pop, but this is what I have for now.
