Drawing from Life -

We had 'long pose' week at Arts Umbrella's figure drawing this last week. Michelle was great fun to watch (of course) - as she did mini-oil-paintings on tiny pieces of Masonite:

She took down her tiny vertical palette of neutral paints (so cool) before I could get a picture, but here are her cute paintings.

And *today* at Arts Umbrella, I began a three day Figure Drawing workshop with Ned Mueller.

The model didn't show up today (much to Ned's consternation), so we ended up going over portraiture instead. A very nice review of basic principles -


-and it was great to watch Ned demonstrate his lovely approach to drawing heads. You can see what I ended up doing today after watching him over on my blog.
