This week was destiny came to model for us. I was teaching my Street Art class till 7:30 so showed up a bit late. I missed the one minute warm-up poses. Great lighting as always and the snacks are good although right now i’m working on my heath so no cookies.
I got there just in time for the last two five minute poses.

The Group brought in Scott to pose he’s the first male model in a long time and it’s the first time using my iPad at a life drawing event. Tonights sketches all posted below. We started, like most sessions, with one Minute poses.
I took a minutes to make a quick pallet. As the night went on i added a pink and yellow.
Big fills with ‘Roller’ tool.
I’m using #Paper53 to do the drawings. The ‘Roller’ tool is my favorite!
Still just doing one minute drawings I feel a bit clumsy with the iPad, new media is always funny at first.
Scott is throwing down great one min poses.
Legs, one minute drawing.
Nope, jump to a new page.
Better, this is the last one minute figure drawing.
Ok five minute figure drawing are flowing better. I and able to break out shapes and show some structure.
More of Scott as captured by Alex Feliciano and his magic tablet.
Getting a bit easier now. More colors added to the pallet.
Nice hands in this one.
Hard pose, I was really trying to capture tention might go back and rework this at a later time.
More great hands, thanks Scott
working on the iPad is tuff but the ease of switching colors makes up for it, I’m using Paper53 on an iPad Pro and Apple pencil,
Now we venture into the 10 minute poses. Hello Detail, can this thing do it?
Yes it can, Another 10 minute figure draw by Alex Feliciano with Paper 53.
10 minutes adding yellow to the pallet.
Fingers, nope, next page please.
Fingers, Better, figure drawing of Scott with pole extension.
P.S. Scott has a light beard and because I don’t get many dudes modeling for me and none with beards I’m like WTF.
20 Minutes, I’m switching to a pencil tool on the iPad.
And the last figure drawing of the night, 20 minutes, Thank you Scott.
Looking around on YouTube and found online figure drawing videos. Very neat stuff, I felt a little clumsy with the remote, iPad, Apple Pencil, and sitting on the couch. The videos are timed and the lighting is nice.
Update: Three woman paintings, they are working out. I have been finding moments to paint. Clem reminds me while she finds a warm spot on the floor in the studio. (Thanks Steve for the great easel). Three woman paintings, 30″ x 40″, acrylic on canvas. I have been going to a open sketch group and working up painting based on some of the sketches.
Every painting is getting more pumped to get to the next one.
The patterns in this one is making me happy, slowly I go.
