Figure Al Fresca at Battery Park - New York City
The Battery Park Conservancy has several free adult art programs from May through October, weather permitting. I love to go to Figure al Fresca, the 2 hour figure drawing session using clothed models. But between our beach travels and weather, this was only my second session for this year.
We started with 15 one minute poses - which I did on newsprint to loosen up. These are the 4 five minute poses which were all done on a large sheet of watercolor paper with a General Sketch and Wash pencil so I could add water for shading. The sheets were photographed because of size.
Here are two 10 minute poses, one 20 minute pose and one portrait done during the 20 minute pose because I had so much trouble sketching her head shape.
This program continues through October - in the South Cove area of Battery Park. It is from 2:30-4:30 on Wednesdays and art supplies are provided for visitors. So join us if you visit NYC.
