Back to Figure Drawing

The rainy season has officially started so indoors I head (for painting and drawing, at least). Here's the first nude I've been able to draw in quite a while.

The man we drew was named Doc, a wonderful art model at the Brush & Palette. It was both fun and challenging to capture his essence, in just 30 minute poses. (I pushed and pulled the volumes a bit more from memory this morning.) Hooray for rain!

By the way, the Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece exhibit is up at the Portland Art Museum. Cannot wait to go sketch the statues.
