Even though she's such a good model, I remember I always have a hard time drawing her for some reason. Especially on her face. Compared to the last two times (last Oct and almost a year ago), I feel I'm getting the forms and gesture of her poses a little better, but still not succeed on her face.
I just realized that it's been a year since I started taking this figure drawing class. My first one was on Jan 29, 2011, and I have been posting it here ever since. Although I'm still struggling so much that I have been feeling I need a good instructor to improve my foundation, and that otherwise I would be going in a circle doing the same thing over and over, and that I never could draw like those greatest artists who can draw amazingly, I do feel a little more comfortable drawing figures now. What do you think?
I've been trying to overlap each drawing a little more in attempt to create some interesting composition as a whole, like a collage, or like these awesomely drawn sketches by this artist, and realized how hard it is. I think I'm gonna keep trying.
It will be showcased at Balconi Coffee Company in West LA. Check it out if you are nearby. It's a pretty cozy café. The opening will be on March 4th, Sunday, and it'll be there for a month.
The official announcement is to be made soon!
P.S. did you know the difference between hung and hanged? Posters are hung; convicted killers are hanged. Wonder why...
She seemed pretty old (maybe in her 50s or 60s), but she could keep those crazy yoga poses very well. I'm not here to criticize the model (which I've been doing quite often here and I should stop and I should start criticize my own drawings more) but those great poses drew me into the good drawing zone.
