This week's figure drawing. 20 minute pose, 18x24.

 

Had to rush the legs, and it shows.

I wish she had that girl's figure :D No, I draw random naked strangers (though I've drawn this particular girl a few times now).

Started a new thing today, something Iíve been meaning to do for a long time. My inspiration is the legendary James Gurney. I spent my break period in the library cafe sketching a patron on her phone. About 10-15 minutes, graphite on sketch paper 5.5◊8.5.

Very nice for a quick sketch.  It's really showing how all that practice you do has paid off, IMO.

This semester, rather than block in values in harsh extremes, we developed a grisaille. For this we used titanium white and raw umber, thinned with oil and gamsol. About two hours, goes much faster when I don't have to consider hue or chroma.

Continuing with the variation on the theme for doing more refined work at the early stages, the local color lay-in this time is much more vibrant than the usual dead color we use. Part of this is the desire to get to later painting stage instruction, despite the time limitations of the class.

Model was running late, so only had around an hour and a half of sitting time, at least a half hour of which was mixing paint. So lots left unfinished, because of both less brush time and less mixing time (didnít have time to whip up mixes for the hair or lips).



As always, we lose a bit of the drawing at this phase. Getting a little better at not completely wrecking it, though!

I'm dropping figure drawing for the second half-semester. The weak instruction in still life wasn't too bad, but it's really apparent in figure drawing. And by weak I mean approaching non-existent. I'm going to try setting aside the three hours to work on figure drawing at home using online resources like Croquis Cafe. Doesn't help that the school is short on models, so they're either tired or completely unskilled and terrible.

Continuing the local color stage, adding hair, neck and lips. Then I put in the background and clothing to better gauge relative values. Iím going to rush the early and middle stages this semester because I want to spend some time learning glazing, which is a later step.

Your progress on this portrait, as compared to the previous two, is so much better and your growth is really showing.  I really like how this is turning out already.

I'm currently working on a postcard to be donated for the Twitter Art Exhibit.  It's something I ran across a while back on FB and I've decided to join this year because I really does sound like a cool idea.  Art for Charity!

Right now this is the first phase with all the layers done; I just want to make sure it's really dry before I move to phase two, which involves gold watercolor paint and a dip pen. :D

Here Iíve begun to refine the highlights, using the additional elements of local color I finished up last week. The local color of the background showed how relatively dull the highlights on the face were, though the shadows arenít too bad relative to the black shirt.
