Canadian Life Drawing Three
Tonight I had my third Life Drawing session at the great art gallery in Tidnish, NS, and we had the same model we had two weeks ago when I went for the first time. It was fun, and great to get out and be doing something, though I also picked blueberries this morning and made blueberry jam in the afternoon! LOL.
As usual it was mostly quick poses, but we had three 20-minute poses so I decided to break out the pastels for a couple of those. Of course 20 minutes is hardly enough to get a lot of detail. It's really barely time for a sketch, so these are hardly "finished" works. But at least I got to use my colors!
I just used pencil for the second 20-minute pose, but I had enjoyed my colors for the first one, so for the third pose I decided to use the pastels again also.
Also hardly a finished picture! Heck, I could easily spend *thirty minutes* just on the hands alone if I had all the time I needed. But 20 minutes total was all I got.So another down and dirty quick sketch in color. Both done on 9x12 Art Spectrum.
