Figure Drawing June 3rd, 2019

I’ve been helping out with timing the models on Monday nights. Larry usually keeps attendance and keeps track of everyone’s hours.

Monday morning I found out that Larry wouldn’t be able to make it in. I therefore needed to step up and do the attendance/hours. Which means that I would have to talk to people.

Not always my strong suit.

I did okay I think. It did take away from that amount of time that I had on poses as I had to get up and check with new people as they came in.

I’m still using the silverpoint on like paper.

Short poses:

Little bit longer:

(These are done on a sheet of the cream colored plike paper. The second one is on the back of the first and you can see it through the paper some.)

I actually like this one…

and the long pose for the evening:

an attempt at making an Instagram friendly photo….

This shows you the points that I am using. They are silver wire in a mechanical pencil holder and in a lead holder. The wider one I sanded down and I use it for shading (like the background) and the little one for details and what not. I sometimes forget to switch between the two and will use one or the other for an entire session.

I don’t know if you noticed, but that drawing is very small. I had been worried that I wouldn’t have enough room to fit all of her on the paper – so I had intentionally gone small…. but as it turns out I went even smaller than I meant to.


Nothing like adding a little extra challenge to your figure drawing.


I won’t be there for figure drawing next week as I am going to Massachusetts for the IMC. I am going back and forth between excited and terrified.

We shall see how it goes.
