All About the Boots

Back to life drawing last night. This time our model brought a few props. It was interesting to see how each artist dealt with it - some making them the focal point, some ignoring them altogether. The drawings that (for me) had the biggest impact were the ones where things like boots and hair colour affect the mood of the model, and it's the mood that we're looking at, not the 'stuff'. That's where I'd like to get to. I so love these sessions. Have I mentioned that before?

Rhymes With Ian

I finally made it back to life drawing last night at Michael Hermesh's house.  There was a new model - Rhiann (rhymes with Ian).  The conversation was entertaining as usual, and I left the session inspired on a whole bunch of levels.  This month has been a little crazy with family and health stuff; but I'm glad I made the effort to go 'feed the artist soul'.
