New Season for Figure Drawing
Although faint, here is a drawing from my Friday morning figure drawing session. Believe that this was a 20 minute pose. The arm is a bit long, but I'm pleased with my progress from the sessions last Spring. The piece on a 24 x 18" paper. That is huge for me. One attendee, who I believe has taught art, is encouraging me to go bigger so that the figure goes off the page. Then, if I have a smaller area such as the hand, I'll be able to actually have a chance to do some detail.
Each Friday for 3 hours we get a model. We do several 2 minute poses, a couple for five minutes, followed by 20 minute time periods. The last pose may be 40 minutes.
