Back to life, back to… well, life drawing!

There was a summer hiatus for the drawing sessions. It wasn’t for school schedules, but because the host gallery had an exhibit that made it impossible to set…

Draw me like one of your French girls! ~ DUDE?!

The same male model, only this is the third version of the pose, he changed it a couple of times along the way. Grrr.

Nothing new here, except more life drawings!

This is a model we’ve had a few times, and he’s… ok. Changes his mind about his pose a lot, even after he’s established it. Oh well. I…

We can redraw her. Draw her faster. Better. Stronger.

Here’s the last of  my “new model” images. They have a heater in the gallery for the models, it was slightly in the shot, so instead of making…

Well that blue up in my face…

That new model again, but for the later poses she put her hair up in a bun— BOOOOOOO!

Trouble on the Red Line-

But then, what else is new in DC? Naw, here’s that new model with red lead. The wife likes the look, I’m still not sold on it.

New model, new week, same bat shi– whoops!

More images of the new model this week. Like I said, she didn’t do overly dramatic, or expressive poses, but what she did she held well; and again,…

Oh model, my new model

Here’s that new model again. She did limited range of poses, but she held them well. I enjoyed the strong attitude she presented in a lot of her…

New model, like a new pencil

Here are some sketches of a new model we had at our sessions. She had a unique body shape, that was elegant, but still on the stout side….

Blue! Blue! Get off the stage!

I just keep going back to it… sorry. It’s the lead, it’s just easy to draw with. It’s not overly waxy, it’s soft, but doesn’t smudge, and I…

Just hanging…

I enjoyed the ponytail, I just find hair a pleasant challenge when drawing.

Ha! Made you look!

Just hanging out, checking out stuff, that’s apparently over —>

An itch you can’t scratch~

Oh come on, it looks like she’s trying to scratch her back. Sheesh. Come up with your own post titles then. ;¬P

Gray skies are gonna clear up…

Or not. Another new gray sketchbook image. Yeah yeah, the head’s too big.

Gray skies are blue again…

Ok, it’s just blue lead. More from that new gray paper sketchbook.

Gray skies …

Filled that tan paper sketchbook, so got a gray one. Here’s first sketch, in regular graphite, and about a 10 min. pose.

What the…?

Remember when I started this arc, that I said the model made some odd choices? Keep in mind, the last pose of the night is 50 min., the…

Still blue (lead) after all this time

Back to the blue, but I got a bit carried away in the texture department— sorry.

Red lead, red rover, send red lead on over

See, like I mentioned a few posts ago, this is a very common pose. I think it has more to do with the stand being up against the…

Well look at that–

I liked this pose, but I never got the head right… ce la vie. I’ve said it before, not everything can be the Mona Lisa.
