Lots of figure drawing lately. It is good to draw like this again. I went to a class in Alpharetta, the ‘Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group’. They have a nice academic format, ten to twenty one minute warm ups, then some five and ten minute drawings. Oh and did I mention the cookies, lots of cookies. Then after a cookie break we do some longer poses.

On this day, my first time at the event I forgot to note the times for each drawing… fear not I will fix that in the future.

This was a short pose, I felt like warming up with hands. First time sketch live models in two plus years.

More hands to warm up, feeling good now.

I am able to get some back and face in this one, I think the lighting was very challenging, that’s a good thing, so it took a minute to find my values.

Now some feet.

Toes, need to do some toes… Fake means from memory.  While she was changing poses, maybe..

Ahh a slightly longer pose. I like the ‘lay’ of the hand in this one.

Again the light was challenging I remember trying to find shadows.

This was a long pose 10 or 15 minutes, I think…

The model was switching poses and seamed so naturally at rest while she rubbed her hands, I think it might have been cold in the studio.

Last and longest pose.
