Haven’t been to drawing for a while, busy at work and unable to leave in time for Open Sketch at the Art Students League. Loved the model, bit of a goofy looking guy, reminded me a bit of Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean), kinda skinny, and well defined in places, but with a pretty big “skinny belly” in certain poses. He had great big bulgy eyes but moved them a bit too much for me to capture them for the portraits.
It’s Free Thursdays at the Montclair Art Museum again! They had a great new exhibit, Kara Walker: Virginia’s Lynch Mob and other works as well as an exhibition looking at Identity in America. We have a returning model in some great outfits for the open-sketch studio, and one of the little girls, Tessa in attendance posed for us too!
Same model as yesterday, really great poses again, but couldn’t capture a lot of them quite as well as yesterday’s session. Last pose she was upside-down, so it was kind of weird drawing her like that and trying to get a likeness. Experimented with some shapes for her face, but it didn’t end up as a good likeness either.
