Figure Drawing – 5-25-11

Notes: Atlanta Artists Center, Charcoal on Newsprint, which I think will be my main medium from now on.  It’s simple and affordable, with a good texture.

Figure Drawing – 5-18-11 – Atlanta Artists Center

Notes: Atlanta Artists Center.  Charcoal on newsprint.  Male model reminded me of Perseus from Greek mythology.  As for the drawings, like a ballplayer, I had an off night tonight, maybe going something like 2 for 4, had other things on my mind.

Figure Drawing – 4-20-11 – Atlanta Artists Center

Notes: Some quick sketches from tonight’s figure drawing session.  Not really a class, but just time to sit and draw, reevaluate where you are in life.  I don’t know how to do PHP coding, I don’t know marketing strategies, I don’t know a bunch of things that you can put down on a fake resume.  […]

Art: Figure Drawing – Jonesboro

I’m so out of shape figure drawing wise, but here are some quick drawings from this past weekend.  Been placing the figures all on one sheet to save paper and money :(.  Like most sessions they usually start out with quick 2 minute warm up drawings and end up with 20 minute poses.  Wish I had more time […]

Art: Figure Drawing

Kate 1 (20 minute figure study) 18×24″ Charcoal on Canson Figure drawing from life is a nice change from the way I’m currently creating art, and it’s definitely different from my photography.  Walk into any event featuring photographers, and you’ll have others asking you what camera or lens you use, perhaps trying to find a correlation between gear and […]
