As an artist, you never know which days you will feel "on" and which days your drawings will fall flat. Friday's class was one of those magical days when the models brought an inspiring performance, and my art came alive. I still have the drawings propped in my studio for admiration.

I had planned this morning to have an art adventure before work took me away from the beauty of spring dawning in nature. I grabbed my backpack & my morning tea, sat outside, and quickly spotted a scene I wanted to sketch.

This approach allowed us to really see the shadow shapes without getting caught up in trying to draw features, and it forced a technique artists often use in the studio in real life, intentionally blurring their vision.
We finished up with an hour-long pose (with breaks for Emily!). Some students focused just on the portrait, and others drew the entire foreshortened pose.
Many thanks to model Emily for her elegant poses and rock-solid stillness!
