In Memoriam

Our local arts community was recently hit with the sad news of the sudden and unexpected passing of one of our stalwart figure models. 

He was a regular for many years, and posed for quite a few schools and art groups in the region. A soft spoken and humorous man, he sometimes drew with us on nights that he was not working. 

This is a couple of ten minute sketches drawn almost exactly a year ago. He is and will be greatly missed as a friend, fellow artist and model.

Mirror Monday…

and a self portrait. That’s me just to the upper right of center, above the model’s reflected back. To the upper left of center is Charlie, a colleague and a regular at figure drawing workshop, and beside him, watching with a critical eye, is a plaster bust of George Washington. This is a fun 45 minute pencil drawing from my sketch book. I might turn this one into a more finished piece, since there is plenty of detail in it.
