Figure Drawing September 26th

Made it back to figure drawing class even after going in the morning for painting class. I hope they don’t get sick of me over there.

This week Josh from the Greece shop came and joined me. It was really awesome to have company. Thanks Josh! If you are not familiar with Josh’s work, you can check out his blog here on his wordpress BLOG or his section on the shop WebPage.

As I mentioned in the last post, Steve had me try out the Coates Willow Charcoal and while it would be a stretch to say that I fell in love with it – it is far nicer than any charcoal that I have had to touch before (I really don’t like the way charcoal feels). So in an attempt to be a big girl and follow suggestions I used it yesterday in paint class. Then I bought a box and told myself that I am going to keep working with it. I can definitely see the advantages to using charcoal… so if I can get over my weirdness with it I am sure it would be a great tool to become more familiar with.

Working with the charcoal was much different and surprisingly I only broke my charcoal up fidgeting and moving around and not while I was actually drawing with it. I do have to admit that I was scared to press down too much with it though. It feels so fragile in the hand.

So here is what I made last night.
