Monday Figure Drawing

  1. Exercise in Spacial Orientation. Same model – 3 different 15 minute poses in the same space.
  2. 20 minute standing pose

Best piece of advice from tonight:

Put down lines with intention – especially paying attention to the thickness of the outline. Heavy contours can reduce the volume and 3D illusion of the body. 

Update: October Figure Drawing

As more leaves fall to the ground, another month passes by…

The pumpkin spiced latte came and went. Starbucks has red cups now.

With the changing times, my figure drawing class was moved from Tuesday to Monday… but what better way to start off the week, then with 5 minute gestures at 8:30 PM?

The crispy air brings a new wave of energy to my A3 sketchbook. And, just like that, my summer worries fall away.

1. I finally got Vine… Yet another social media channel. The app is quite easy to use and create short, snackable video loops. The 6 second video is similar to the 140 character tweet. A new standard of attention span. 

2. I have still been going to life drawing, but haven’t posted progress recently. See quick examples in the Vine above.

3. Happy Sunday. Where are my weekends going? I need to regain my weekends to write in my journal, post on my blog, and bake vegan sweets from scratch.
