Twice the Fun

Working from the live figure is always a challenge. Add a second model and things get very interesting very quickly. Preconceptions and habits regarding figure drawing need to be largely tossed out the window. A packed house had the distinct honor of working from two terrific models Monday night. Judging from the mood in the room and the drawings produced everyone rose to the challenge.

Fredericksburg Figure Drawing will meet just once in December. Monday the 12th at 7:00pm we will host a female model. There will be cupcakes.

Safe Place

In the wake of our national election the evenings conversation only briefly touched on politics. The focus quickly shifted to the task at hand - figure drawing. A group of artists with diverse backgrounds and opinions finding common ground in the human form.

Thanks to a wonderful new model Deirdre for her gracious poses and kudos to a group of dedicated artists who came out on a rainy night.

Our next session will be Monday, November 28th at 7:00pm. We will have the rare opportunity to work from both a male and female model at the same time. The session will include a one hour pose.

Workout

Drawing from the live figure is a workout. It is both physically and mentally challenging. The rewards are many with the most immediate being a burst of endorphins that can linger for days.

Our next session will be Monday, November 14th at 7:00 pm. It coincides with the full moon and will feature a new female model.

New Faces

Our opening session back from summer break attracted a good number of new artists including two first timers to the live figure. Right out of the starting gate a favorite model offered up some tough inventive poses. It is exciting to see live figure drawing generating such a high level of interest and energy in our community.

Our next session will be Monday, October 10th at 7:00pm. There will be a male model.

Summer Break

A big turnout for our last session of the season. We couldn't have asked for a better night. It was a bit on the warm side but the expected sauna like conditions didn't materialize. A terrific new model provided us with some of the best poses of the year. 

Fredericksburg Figure Drawing is an evolving entity. The common thread we all share is a passion for working from the live nude. Somehow the challenges the figure presents are more than compensated for by the rewards. All aspects of ones art benefit from the effort.

We will start up again in the cooler days of September.
