Some life drawings

Some of my favorite results from previous months of Friday drawing sessions.  I've gone to many sessions in that time, but most turn out terrible.  I'm usually showing up late so these are all between 15-60 minutes.

We didn't actually use a red light (that would have been interesting), I just wanted to paint values but didn't want to go monochromatic.

  2. Okay. Va va voom? Really? I thought that sketching girls for art's sake was supposed to be dispassionate and professional. Uh-huh. That's what Christensen told me. The big fat liar. Here, in the comments, we find the truth. And I don't know how anybody could look so bored and disgusted, standing there with her bikini on in the middle of the end of autumn when it's freezing and people are vooming all around her, unless it's a defense mechanism, and she just needs the money for her aging, dying mother.

    Hmmph.

  3. K: You have to understand Matthew. This is a guy who spends his days drawing Star Wars Transformers. We keep it to ourselves when he emits an inappropriate va voom or two.
