Thursday nights at the Artist’s Edge in Poulsbo, Washington is open for artists to draw from life. Peter is one of our very professional models and fun to draw.
Don’t forget to check out my website: http://www.dianakingsley.net
The following was a five minute pose with the same model.
On Thursday nights in Poulsbo Derek Gundy has a live model come into the Artist’s Edge and we all have the opportunity to spend three hours drawing the model of the evening. Sara is a wonderful model and hold her pose perfectly. I am usually lucky enough to have one or two of my drawings be presentable enough to post.
I love the environment of other artists of all different levels of ability having a great time working on their skills.
There is is always room for more artists as generally only about 8 show up on any given night and there is room for at least 12. come join us!!
I think I may have found a style that I enjoy. I love doing abstracts, but adding the nude on top of the color was great fun. Please tell me what you think. The woman just seemed to emerge from the abstract and seemed to want to be seated. I am thinking about doing more of these in the future. Love doing abstracts and have fun drawing figures, so this might be a fun combination to do in the future.
Today I woke up and had an idea. I have been working on this abstract and loved the colors, but thought it lacked something. Today I took an Oil Crayon and drew the nude on top of the abstract, then added skin tone to set it apart from the abstract. I feel it fit right in and it was so much fun to try something new.
What do you think??
Just this last week I started taking a figure drawing class after not doing much in charcoal for a while. The model struck this pose and I thought “how do I do this?”
I like the result. It is only 8 x 8 inches, so not big, but I had fun trying to bring some drama into the pose. Hope I can be posting more in the future.
Line work can make or break a drawing. We all need to draw more. I have heard and read more artists say your painting is only as good as your drawing. I try to draw something every day, so my line work hopefully improves over time.
At Almost Candid Gallery in Kingston, the owner decided that February would be a good month for a Nude show, so have done a couple of little 5 x 7 pastel drawings.
