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.
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.
Short pose night at the Art Students League, haven’t had a male model in a while. This guy was great, very wiry older gent who looked like “ecorché man” from my art academy days. He very much felt like a living embodiment of an Egon Schiele painting the whole time. Started trying to sketch with watercolors, needs work…
Tried my hand at watercolors at the Art Students League short pose session, I’ve seen a bunch of people working with wet media, and it looked too intriguing to let go. I can’t say I’m super please with the results though, I’m going to need to work on that….
(I also ran out of paper and had to do two of my drawings in my sketchbook towards the end)
