July 20 Figure Study
Last night was my figure drawing class in Madison. We had a model, though a clothed one. She was graceful and lovely, though not what I expected. We're still working with vine charcoal, covering the background with a medium value, then adding in darks and lifting out the highlights. She positioned herself for a forty minute pose, and I drew her twice in that time, once in crayon on newsprint, and this one on nicer paper.
There are two weeks left, though I can only attend next week, since we're going away for a week at the beginning of August. We'll see what model we get for next week.
