First blog ever. Another freezing cold march morning in the winter that never ends. Got the wood stove going and went through a few drawing portfolios of live figure drawing sessions, looking for some example to put on the website. The pencil drawings have a lot more resolution than the pastels which I have just started using but I like all the distortions and the stylistic feeling of the pastels. They also seem more connected to an art history past. I will pick some of each. I love going through them and remembering each of the models, usually hard up students looking for a bit of cash. Each with their own special vibe and presence. Wish we could get more males, guys to pose. Love the angles and the attitude.
I will be leaving for the art department soon to set up a still life for my students who have missed classes during the week. Perhaps a bowl full of green apples to remind us of the green to come.
