Naked Tuesdays

We had a new model last night.  She is a full time yoga instructor and let me just say WOW.  Hopefully  by the end of the month with her I will be able to draw her with a little bit of justice.

Celeste:  Five minutes

I like this one though I don't feel like I got her legs quite right.  I do  like the roughness of the sketch and how the highlights make it seem more dimensional and pop off the page.

Celeste:  10 to 20 second gestures  Being a yoga instuctor after the end of each 20 minute session she did these incredible stretches.  Being a student of the quick gesture I tried to capture the energy of some of her movement and stretches.

Celeste:  10 minutes After the furious quick gesturing,  I was finally able to settle down and really start working on her, unfortunately my time ran short and I had to head off to kickboxing.  I think this very unfinished drawing looks rather sensitive for me and I know  it's something I need to practice more.

Looking good. Oh how I covet the fact that you have a lifedrawing class to go to.

Question, how big are these drawings and how do you get them scanned in? Are you scanning in pieces and assembling or using a digital camera for such large things? (I'm assuming these drawings are larger than 11x14) Either that or you have a very large scanbed.

So which is it?

Wow...very good. I miss figure drawing! I took three classes in it and it was always a favorite. We had a beautiful model named Brandi one year, who was always so accommodating. A good model makes the class so much better! Did Celeste enjoy coming around during breaks to look at your drawings of her?

Are those really the times it took to do them? Just amazing.
