Saturday's Open Figure Drawing

Well, I remembered that our sessions begin at 9am, not 10am, and got there in plenty of time and still stopped for my Starbucks :) Although Starbucks was very busy this morning and the baristas weren't singing or laughing - too busy trying to keep up with all the orders!





Here is the sketch for today - a model I enjoy drawing. She has wonderfully curly hair and a pale streak in it and lovely shaped lips and a round body that is fun to draw.



The lighting was such that it created some interesting shadows, too.

I'm glad you got your coffee and made it for the full drawing session. I enjoyed your drawing and like the softness/shading of the shadows in the chest and belly area.

I also like the design motif behind the pears. Will you be adding more darks to the pears to give them more contrasts?

Thanks, Ann :) She is a rounded woman and so fun to draw! The pears still need something and Sandy suggested lifting out some leaf shapes that mimic the others - will do that when I get the time in the next few days.
