Happy Valentine’s Day! Our model at the Art Students League today was a super thin, fit, black lady with a great big, green dookie holding her hair.
We had our first new model at the Montclair Art Museum’s FIrst Free Thursday of February Open Studio in over a year; a black girl with long hair in a jump suit and Ugg-like boots with a fluffy fringe. It was a great turn-out at the studio today. Along with Steve and Eddie there were a few other regulars, a whole Cub Scout Pack, a guy who drew on his iPad, and lots of kids and adults dropping in throughout the night.
Had another great model at the Art Students League. This guy was built like a brick house, really solid body-builder-type body with a “mullet” mohawk, short in the front and longish in the back, and he did the most amazing super-hero-type poses too, though I’m sorry to say I didn’t work fast enough to capture them very well.
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.
