October 2011 Figure Drawing at the Society of Illustrators

 The following 3 figures were drawn on "costume night" and the model (an actor and dancer) wore interesting vintage clothing.  These are the 3 twenty minute poses and all were drawn with watercolor pencil and then shaded with water during the 20 minutes. 

My paper is too big for the scanner, so they were all photographed, leaving something to be desired in color and muddy background.  The paper really is bright white.

These are lovely. You have really captured the clothing and the mood.

Looks like EVERYONE has fun, Shirley!

You did great! Love the fun costumes!

You did well with the little dresses, not easiest thing to draw. The last one is my favorite, the thinness of the fabric very well captured.

It must be fun not knowing what the costumes will be? Great work!
