TSA Sunday

Posted: January 10th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Life Drawing, TSA | 4 Comments »

There are drawing days when my hand just doesn’t cooperate. What a lousy morning I had! I have posted a few sketches nonetheless. All of these are short poses (1-10 min) of the model Amanda — the 15-20 minute are now in the recycling.

The long pose this afternoon was a little better. I played around with cross-hatching, which is still rough but improving. That’s the drawing at the top, and the model was Claudette.

Scottsdale Farm

I attended my first outing with the Ontario Plein Air Society on January 2nd. We went to the Scottsdale Farm on a VERY cold day. I had so many layers on, I looked like a snowman myself. I never thought anyone could paint on a day like that but surprised myself by completing this small study. I had started another larger painting, but the lighting conditions changed drastically, from bright and sunny to cloudy and I had to put it aside.

Michaela at the TSA

Here are a few drawings from last night, one of the rare Thursday nights I can attend the TSA. Michaela did a wonderful job, exerting herself mightily by holding tough poses.

Here are a few of the drawings of Amanda, drawn at the TSA today. The top one is from the long pose in the afternoon, and the ones below vary from 5-15 minutes.
