In our Live drawing sessions it’s always the extremities that don’t get enough attention, so today I followed a workshop Drawing Hands and Feet. We started with drawing our own hands and in the afternoon we had a model for them and the feet:
These above were modeled by Emi and the following are mine, starting with a difficult foreshortening:
Here we held a cup first, then took the cup away to draw the pose – I left a little impression of the cup in the drawing:
The last ones here are some of the firsts of this morning, still a bit insecure…
I loved the workshop and also was very happy to hold a pencil again after my adventure with oil paint 🙂
Today we were drawing/painting Linde in one pose. It was a private session and there was no time limit. So I focused first on getting the proportions right with pencil and then carefully added some watercolor and lines with watercolor pencil. Don’t think it’s finished yet, will see….
And the next sketch I forgot to post last Sunday. It’s on thick grey colored paper, which is also useable for paint. Will use that to experiment a little during the holidays.
Today we had a beautiful model! She is the lead singer of a ten man band (soul/jazz style from ’63 to the ‘70s). in her repertoire there are songs of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Whitney Houston, Ella … etc. I just heard a few songs on Youtube and I’m blown away. What an artist! We were very lucky to have her.
Chandara is a new model for our live drawing sessions. She is a yogini from India and during the break in a conversation we had for just a few minutes, I got a lot of useful information for my own practice. So that was a nice present yesterday 🙂
