Rather liked the way some of the gesture drawings have come out the last couple of weeks, getting less of the “line” but more of the overall gesture of the figure; we’ll see how that goes.
I did like the portrait at the end of the session though. We seem to have a lot of red head models, lately, love that contrast against the fair skin tone.
We had two models again posing for us for short poses at the Art Students League, the black girl with her hair in a bun, and the red-headed white girl with the severe bob.
Managed to get in a few good gesture drawings and some nice three quarter view “portraits” from the back.
Great models at the Art Students League, again, short poses session
Back to short poses at the Art Students League, here with a great muscular male model.
Great model at the Art Students League today, wiry old guy with a great big hill billy beard on the long pose side.
Tried the long pose side of the room at the Art Students League today. Had a silver haired lady model.
In lieu of not having very much posted recently, here are a bunch of sketches from my sketchbook. These sketches cover May through July 2019.
Short poses at the Art Students League. Loved the model’s “hair” it was a piece, but so creative, a simple bunch of bright orange pom-poms.
Got to the Montclair Art Museum for open sketch on the last free Thursday a little late, and Steve couldn’t come today either. @tinaroseoriginals was our model again, and posed in a sparkly red dress today. The only two things worth posting were one drawing and a watercolor sketch.
Terrific male model at the Art Students League again. Older gentleman with slim sinewy muscles. Tried to capture the whole pose instead of concentrating on the contours in some sketches, but I think I missed the mark on pose and line this time.
I liked the longer poses better, getting OK 5 and 10 minute wet media sketches down fairly well. I have to do this more so my decision making gets better…
Fairly happy with my portrait, my pastels are getting worn down to stubs and I’m going to need to buy some of my go to colors soon.
