Last week's session- Dec. 1, 2011

I used a charcoal bar stick to draw these, for a broader and more vivid set of drawings. The model was well defined, a treat for figurative study.

After a great summer, I am back to weekly figure drawing. It's no nice to be back to it.
The model, Sara, is a dream to draw. There can never be enough practice.

June 2, 2011 at Nyack Center

Figure drawing with an excellent male model. The practice is essential- like stretching muscles, the eye-hand-mind connection that happens is SO important. When I have missed a week, I can feel it in static stiff drawing, hesitance and over compensation.

April 21, 2011 Figure drawing session at Nyack Center post 2

Sketching at Nyack Center has been working out really well- a little more open than Hopper House, and while it does not quite have the charm of HH, it is functionally an excellent working space for us and has it's own beauty.
I find these drawing sessions so important; visual stretches. It helps keep a certain fluidity to my commercial work, and is a joyful place for me to work among other artists and be inspired by them.

More sketches from past figure drawing sessions

These sessions really help me as a court artist. Doing quick 2-minute poses, the 'visual sprints' help me to look for, and find, the essence of a pose. Trying to keep that fluidity while finishing the work is my ongoing goal.

Feb 10, 2011 sketches

Felt so good to draw last week. Our model was Sarah, who is excellent. I needed to be pushed on turns and foreshortening. Can never get enough practice!

Work from January 19th session at Hopper House

Worked with color this session; good to practice pushing warms and cools and working to capture form and movement.
