Hi folks! It’s been an amazing, intensive weekend for me– I’m sure I’ll be talking more about it soon– but for now I want to post a few final figure drawings from February and March. Additional drawings from these two sessions can be found in the Figure Drawing 2011 section of my website. A huge thank you to the models for their work with our class, especially to Annette; the reverse strip-tease felt like something out of a Lautrec sketchbook. I loved it! Enjoy!
More figure work this week! I’m feeling pretty out of practice (that’s what I get for a year off from life drawing!) It’s high time to dig out my favorite pieces from Degas, Lautrec, Manet, Klimt, Schiele, Kley, and all the rest and do some serious studying. The Sketchbook tab has been updated to include a Figure Drawing Gallery for this winter. Check back for more work every week!
Figure drawing, how I’ve missed you! Monday was the first of this semester’s life drawing sessions at The Center for Cartoon Studies, and this week’s models–Lin & Bill, a married couple– were fantastic as usual. They frequently pose together for art classes in the Upper Valley, and their rapport is a delight to draw. It is rare to have two models posing together in the first place, let alone interact, so a hearty THANK YOU goes out to them both. It’s been ages since I’ve done this, so it was a great way to warm up as I launch into projects that require drawing lots and lots of figures. I hope to have some samples up of my illustration process soon. Stay warm out there!
