Figure Drawing for October 31, 2011

Happy Halloween!



OK, this is a bit of a cheat... This is from my Tombstone I painted a couple years back and was one of the first posts on this Blog.  I also posted a couple updated tombstone pictures on my (Mostly) Comic Book Blog.  

The image is about 11" x 14" and was done with Acrylic paint on 2' x 3' x 1" plywood.

Two Year Anniversary!

Well, here it is, 2 years after my first "real" post on the blog (I'm not counting the one where I just said "Hooray, I'm on the InterWebs!").  So far, I've done 399 posts in two years, so, while not all that great, it isn't all that bad, either--an average of a post every 1.8 days.  

Of course, if I was paying more attention, I could have had my 400th post be on the anniversary date, but I suppose it is just as good to have the 400th post be the first of year three.

This was a painting I did in 2008 for a model who was kind enough to pose for me, personally.  I worked on this painting over the better part of a week when I would have a free hour or two.  It is definitely more finished than my usual postings--which are done within the time limits of the figure drawing sessions I go to.


This was done with watercolor on 16" x 20" Waterford 140# watercolor paper.

For mild amusement, here was part of the process...

Thanks to everyone for stopping by for the past two years!  Hopefully, here's to another 2 years!  (Maybe more...)

Figure Drawing for October 3, 2011

5 Minute Pose

I  found some older pictures from a couple years back and thought I'd post 'em over the next week or so (and maybe keep a few on hand, just in case I run low on stuff to post).  In this series of poses, the model wore a pair of costume angel wings, which I found visually interesting.  


This was done with charcoal pencil and white chalk on 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock.
