Practice, Practice ...

No matter how many times I've posted the various "how to's" of figure drawing I'm always surprised how quickly I forget them when I've missed a month (or more). I put pencil to paper too quickly without first observing the figure, I use my eraser too much or I fail to get the entire figure on the paper. It's true, life drawing for an artist is the equivalent of practicing scales for a musician and by maintaining a routine my line is more fluid, I'm more relaxed, I don't overthink it and I take time to observe.

We welcomed some new artists last Monday and missed some of the "regulars". My thanks to all those that continue to weekly Life Drawing in Fredericksburg. 

Emily will be posing for us on Monday August 11th.

Happy Birthday Figure Drawing!

Four years old today - thanks to all of those who continue to support figure drawing in Fredericksburg. We are so fortunate to have this opportunity each week. We have a growing list of wonderful, experienced artist's models and probably the most ideal space for drawing we could hope for. It's a joy to draw together and always inspiring, invigorating and, at times - hard work. 

We welcome all skill levels of artists to draw in a relaxed atmosphere to music. Bring your own dry media. The cost is $20 or 4 sessions for $70.

Our thanks to Les, for wonderful standing and seated poses. 
Our models for the month of May will be:
May 5th   - Robert
May 12th - Breanne
May 19th - Emily
May 26th - Janet
