Of the 15 or 16 poses last night, I kept about 10 drawings, should have kept half that many, and scanned these three. The model was great, the 60s-70s background music featured The Byrds.

Oil on canvas
20" x 16"
This is Gabe, one of the models for a four-week portrait oil painting class that I attended, taught by Kevin Gorges, in Santa Fe. I think I probably unofficially flunked the class, because Kevin was pretty insistent that I attend at least the first two sessions of the next class. The big question with a portrait painting is always “Does the painting actually look like the model?” Yes. In fact, it actually looks even more like him than he does.

|Pencil drawing from the Tuesday Night Drawing Group, |
using a $40 pencil given to me by drawing-group-regular/artist/pal Karl Whitaker.
The Bad News: As far as I can tell, no one noticed that I haven't posted a blog here for a couple of years. Not even me.
The Good News: No one complained.
Other Good News: A lot of interesting stuff (interesting to me, at least) has been happening and this is a good place to make note of it for later reference, so I'm back on the occasional blog routine. Now, when when someone say’s “Whatcha’ been up to?” I can say “Thinkin’ ’bout ’bloggin’.”

Friend and fellow Tuesday Night Drawing Group regular, Holly Grimm, has a beautiful exhibit of pastel landscapes at Betterday Coffee in the Solano Center on West Alameda Street (Santa Fe).
The images range from impressionistic to abstract, all featuring beautifully clean colors and color harmonies that reflect her skill as an artist in general, and specifically as a colorist.
The exhibit opened Friday, December 9 and will remain up for the month.
