Drawing FUNdamentals

I have not posted many videos on my site, but here it goes! Tonight we discussed vine and compressed charcoal and how to use chiaroscuro to create a light source and make something look 3D in a drawing. I set up an O’Keefish (that’s a word right?) still life. My students turned out some AWESOME drawings. We also had fun flashing back to an 80’s radio mix station.

Friday Night Drawings

Happy Saturday! Last night I went to a much needed life drawing session at the Visual Arts Center. We had a model who seems to be a regular around the Richmond life drawing groups. I really enjoy this model because he is quirky (cracking jokes most of the time) as well as comfortable posing. His poses are always dynamic and interesting. I thought that I would share a couple of nice drawings that came out of last nights group.
