Figure Drawing at the Essex

Very few people showed up today. Out of town, just too hot to get out of the air-conditioned house, or maybe just too tired - it seemed the 5 of us who showed up today were all tired and groggy. Must be the heat. It was a bit warm in the studio by 11 am when we stopped.


Here's what I came up with today. After several weeks of not drawing at all, it was hard to get started and this is my 2nd try of the same pose. I had to make myself slow down and take breaks. I didn't measure anything, just tried to slow down and sight it. The position of that leg with the knee facing me, was not easy!

Well done! You have good instincts, and talent to carry through. I really enjoy your art.

Thanks, Lin. It's been pretty quite around here - I thought everyone had deserted me! But I haven't been putting new work on recently and that makes a difference. It was good to get back to drawing in the studio again.

Thanks, Dawn. I did do pretty good with that knee and bent leg - but I spent a lot of time fiddling with it, too!

I enjoy seeing your figure work. I like the way you did his arm coming across his chest and the left knee/leg.

Thanks, Ann! I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. I think this is fairly successful - but you should have seen the first one! haha Not sharing it - sometimes you just have to start over, you know...
