Digital Oil

Experimenting with a charcoal drawing. Digital oil painting is starting to freak me out.

New Hairdo

I feel like a slob when the model goes to the trouble to have her hair done and wears a nice necklace. I mean, when a nude model is better dressed than you are, you're hopeless. Or an artist. Maybe both.

Once Again

Once again, my warmup drawings at the start of the drawing session are better than the longer poses over the next several hours. That tells me something, but what?

Classical Mode

The image in the previous post used one part of this drawing. When a drawing is too large to put in the scanner, I usually photograph it. However, that usually includes exposure and focus problems. So now I scan the drawing in 4 to 6 sections, then use Photoshop to merge the scans into one image.

Classical Mode

Model with hair down. 
In a Shakespearean play, if a woman's hair is down 
it pretty much means the woman has gone crazy. 
Not really the case in life drawing.

Hannah's Knee

After scanning one of last Tuesday night's drawings in several pieces, I liked the unusual cropping and decided to experiment with the partial image.
