Recent Figure Drawings
Here are some recent 'best-of' from the figure drawing pile. I know, I know, if this is 'best-of', then we're in trouble! But alas, a blog isn't for perfection, it's about work in progress. I haven't traditionally done as much gesture drawing before Blue Sky, so I'm trying to strengthen my approach and help to economically suggest form and structure. The short poses are mostly 2-5 min, and the more refined pieces are between 20-75 min.
The first piece of the 'Death of Marat' was a fun night. The model is incredible, and he brought foam cubes, sheets, and props, and created this scene, among others. I have rarely seen a model be so artistically informed, or take modeling to such a high level as he does. And you'll notice the little baby drawings at the end here; my little boy came and modeled for us one night. He is not a sedentary boy. So, it was a game of try and get as much information before he moves. Hence the large number of heads:) Enjoy!
