After doing a quick sketch of the figure I decided to study of the arm and head as reference for an illustration I'm working on.
On Fridays at LHS we have a morning figure painting session that lasts three hours. It has a much different atmosphere since it is only instructors and advanced students that attend.
Lavender Hill Studios works almost exclusively from mass bassed media - vine charcoal and oil paint. So over the past few years I've grown tremendously in those areas, but have felt the pencil drawing that I learned at Otis College of Art and Design slipping. Now that I'm starting to do my own work, I want to be able to combine all the philosophies I've studied and the line drawing needs some brushing up. I've comitted myself to a sketch club at LHS and hope to be back on track by the end of term.
I was attempting to show my students how limiting the information and sticking to three core values can create a stronger drawing in this demo, but as usual everone wants to charge ahead and put finger nails and eyelashes on the damn thing.
