Drawing of the Day, Wednesday 9/18/2019

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.

Drawing of the Day, Thursday 9/5/2019

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.

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.

Drawing of the Day, Thursday 3/21/2019

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…

 

Drawing of the Day, Thursday 3/14/2019

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)
