I had a good start to the week yesterday. I got in a nice run before running off to figure class. The advanced students had a new model and she was wonderfully put together. We got two long poses for the session and I was satisfied with both of my drawings. I have not brought home any of my drawings and will only look at them again when it’s time to choose drawings for the portfolio we will turn in at midterm. I will then maybe post my best ones.
Today began with a horrid headache. By late afternoon I felt better and got to work on the rest of the master study assignment. The final part of the master study is to do a drawing in a style similar to the master artist. In this case after Monet. We are to work from life but honestly, my eyes just have a hard time with that. So I posed in front of my mac, snapped a photo in photo booth and worked form a blown up image of that. It is strange to see myself with out my glasses because I can’t even make it to the bathroom without them. My son says it looks just like me and I think it so too.
