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.

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.

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.

Our model was an older lady with short hair at the Art Students League short poses tonight. Still experimenting with wet media for the 5 and 10 minute poses, needs more practice. The last drawing on the page was an attempt at an extreme caricature with the remaining 8 minute pose of the day.

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)

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.
