Mirror Monday

This is the second installment of my mirror series. I use workshop time to draw the pose, then, in my studio,  I modify it, transfer it to a good piece of paper and finish it. This is yet another of our talented models with the ability to lock-in and stay still for long poses.

Figure Friday

This lovely lady was (if memory serves me) a writer by day, but she also had a short-lived career as a figure model. She posed for us a few times, and even wrote about her experience as a live model in a blog called The Yellow Robe. She was talented, and I managed to get a few good drawings from her poses. This is one, a ten minute drawing, using watercolor pencil and wash on Bristol board. We were disappointed when she retired.

This is one of my sisters-in-law, contemplating the sea and the moon and whatever nature put on display one afternoon at the shore. It’s drawn from a photo, and is currently part of her collection.
