Figure Drawings Continued...

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 Week's Figure Drawings

These are from the ASL. I have to get back to Spring Street or check out another mid week workshop. As it turns out life drawing 3x a week is always better than life drawing 2x a week. No surprises there...

More Tiny Sketches


Sneaking an environment sketch in there.. :T Now that I look at it the values are all over the place. I'm gonna fix that and update it.

Update - 

Elle Emenope

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.

Figure Paintings--Er, Drawings

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 N That Extravaganza

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.

Figure Drawings from Spring St

Two free workshops?! How lucky am I?! Special Thanks to Minerva, who runs the Spring Street Studio.
