A Most Unusual Week

My week was very unusual.  I spent a total of 8 hours in 3 figure drawing sessions - my FIT class, and the Battery Park afternoon session and an evening at the Society of Illustrators with my friend Pat and Jana Bouc, who was visiting from San Francisco.  In total I sketched 45 figures!

FIT Class Week 4:  We began shading our figures and here are my 2 twenty minute poses:

These are 1, 2, and 5 minute poses of our male model in Battery Park: I sketched with a soluble graphite pencil and "painted" the clothing with water

Finally, these are the two minute poses of our two models at Society of Illustrators.  One of the models had very red, very long, very curly hair and I then did a 10 and 20 minute sketch of her:

45 sketches is a pretty intense schedule. Obviously worth the effort. The pages for your grand child are so precious. You are the one who inspired me to join the local figure drawing sessions. Thanks.

All your practice shows -- your figure drawings are getting more deft.
A castle in the basement doesn't sound so bad to me... as long as it comes with a moat :)
