Last week, after having been unable to attend for so many weeks, I excitedly rushed to Figure Drawing group with the Oklahoma Artists Guild.  Except for being late, I had a blast.  When I walk in to figure drawing late, I feel like I am offending the model.  It’s like saying that her time is not valuable and I don’t care enough about her to be there on time.  I don’t really care about her that much, per se, but I don’t want to offend her or make her feel unappreciated in any way.  She was a lovely model with a creative flair for the short poses!  When the timer went of to change up, she instantly went into the next pose and held it for the entire time.  Not all the models use their “pose” time to consider what they are going to do next.  I think she was great and hope to see her again sometime.

I had the hardest time with the China Marker last week!  Usually, the big black crayon and I get along just swell.  This time, I may as well have been drawing with a twig for its ability to mark paper.  My bride says I need to have melted it a little, but this was after sitting in my black leather art bag for the 40 mile trip in 90+ F!  I don’t know what the issue was, but it severely hampered my mood.

  1. Aveen, When I walk in late and try to be quiet while setting up it’s like a scene straight from Mr. Bean! The short poses are what I really want to get better at so that when I’m sketching I can capture people faster.

    Ashley, Thank you so much!

    Andrew, The models that have come into that group since I have been there have all been wonderful. It takes a special kind of person to be that relaxed while a room full of people scrutinize your every distinction.

    Owen, I just don’t want my site to become black listed as Not Safe For Work. I found out sometime later that the linked images didn’t work right, but the uncensored images are just a click away. This way you can’t accidentally pull up anything that might get someone fired.
