Just quick update of what I have been up to lately. I am certainly slacking on the updates but don’t really want to bore you all with posting drawing exercises all the time. I have been doing a lot of cast block ins. Basically every day I just block in the same cast from a different perspective and try to get my proportions accurate. I think i am getting better but still struggle.
Some days I just work on doing copies of the Bargue figures. Focusing on the same things. These help a lot for when I draw from the live figure. I try to copy them in the same way that I would be drawing from the figure… focusing on the main big proportions and using the main anchor points that wouldn’t be moving around a lot on a live figure.
I do figure drawing every Saturday and now we just started one on Wednesdays as well. I don’t have much to show… here is one from last Wednesday (not very pleased with how it turned out… oh well).
Lastly, I have a little news that I am pretty excited about. I was accepted into Grand Central Academy’s Hudson River Fellowship. I’ll be going to New Hampshire the last two weeks of July to hang out in a Cabin with 20 other artists and go landscape drawing and painting. I am really looking forward to it! I hope to pick some brains and learn as much as I can from the other students. 🙂 Here is a link to the website if anyone is interested in seeing what it is all about: http://www.grandcentralacademy.org/hudson-river-fellowship.php
