Saturday, Sunday and Monday (or Too Many Pictures)

Saturday I started reconstructing a tattoo for a client who was injured in a fire. We made the tattoo originally many years ago and on Saturday we started to put it back together. We will need one more sitting to finish it entirely.

Sunday was Super Bowl Sunday. It is one of my favorite days to be out and about because there are so many less people. I started out on a walk around the neighborhood and eventually wound up at the zoo. Here is where the too many pictures part comes in.

And of course then on Monday we have the figure drawing stuff. This week we had a model who had never posed before so there was much confusion. One of the other students let me borrow a Derwent charcoal pencil for one of the poses and I liked it. I’ll have to see if I can find them. (Gretchen if you are out there today – you might like them also. Much better control and if you sharpen it to a chisel point you can get some neat effects)

and of course one of the cats had to help me photograph – which has no bearing on so many of these photos being out of focus. That was all me.

Steve Carpenter is having a big studio drawing/painting day on Saturday the 25th. I thought it would be on their website – but doesn’t appear to be. If you are interested you could always call them. It’s a potluck thing with people working in all sorts of media – I think they will have two different models and it sounds like a lot of fun (if you don’t work on Saturdays).

It does look like they will have the painting class on Mondays again next semester though, so I will definitely be signing up for that again. I had a lot of fun and learned a ton!
