Couple, 40-minute pose. 10" X 10", oil/gessoed BFK
There's a recently-organized life class available at the SD Art Institute (where I often show), and I finally had a chance to check it out. Here's what I did there, in reverse order--the painted sketch above was the final (and, at 40 minutes, the longest) pose of the night. Prior to that, a 20-minute pose:
Couple 2, 9" X 9", oil/BFK
I've missed working from the figure, so even these short poses were fun to do.
Here are the earlier, shorter poses, done in pencil:
and to be honest, I like some of those two and five-minute drawings best of all.
I'll be traveling a lot for the rest of the month, two trips to Washington DC and lots of museum and gallery-crawling! Hopefully I'll have some new work to post in November if not sooner.
