Ohio Art League Drawing Session

Sunday afternoon 1:00 - 4:00 PM - my first time at the open life drawing session sponsored by the Ohio Art League in Columbus, OH. $8.00 = 3 hours of time with a live model. I am out of practice, but I think some progress was made in the 3 hours of study. You can click on the images and enlarge them if you like.

Today's Tools
11 x 14" Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Pad
Bic Retractable Pencil
#4 Charcoal Pencil
Sienna Conte Crayon
Kneeded Eraser

60 second poses - Bic pencil
The model said she'd been doing a lot of Yoga lately,
and she took complex and interesting poses.

2 minute poses - still using the same pencil

2 minute poses continued & one 15 minute pose
Oooh, I am out of practice

40 minute pose? charcoal and conte crayon, eraser as drawing tool

30 minutes - charcoal on white Rives BFK
the prince of printmaking papers!

25 minutes, charcoal and conte, eraser
 on Strathmore 400 series off white paper

What a pleasure to spend an afternoon with a wonderful model.
C'est tout!
