Sunday AM at Minerva’s
I’ve been working on faces lately, but isn’t not easy something I have avoided for many years.
Sometimes a drawing benefits from being cropped. a pastel of Maria with a few inches removed, now 17×22 inches instead of 18×24.
My show at Minerva’s Drawing Studio came down last Sunday, but I was happy for the success. The opening was packed, more than 100 people came and I sold 3 drawings! We also had a small ‘closing reception’ then took the show down. I have good quality pictures of the work on Google photo https://goo.gl/photos/acFZKfcKyCt2VMRB6 if you couldn’t see it live. Here’s a pastel from this week of Maria.
I was posing at Minerva’s Drawing Studio,(aka Spring Studio) on Thursday doing fast poses, 15-30 second poses. It definitely forces the artists out of their comfort zone and allows the model to have a huge amount of creativity. Here are some drawings done by a talented artist Charles H. Connelly.
I created a virtual tour of my show, here is a link:
It has a few extra drawings that will not be part of the show, they were left out to make the show fit better in the gallery space available.
