Keeping It Going

As always, a great night for drawing K.C.'s beautiful poses.  If it's been a while since you've attended a life drawing session it may be time to join us. It's never without its frustrations and rewards.

My thanks to all of the artists who support Life Drawing in Fredericksburg each week ... you all make it possible!


Janet will be posing on April 7th

Emily on April 14th

K.C. on April 21st

Les on April 28th

Robert on May 5th

Breanne on May 12th

The Beat Goes On

I've been reading Juliette Aristides book, Lessons in Classical Drawing. She talks a lot about the rhythm of the line, how alternating between straight and curved lines, between lost and found edges and between dark and light areas creates action in your drawing and pause points for the eye to rest. Also, "each choice you make when putting pencil to paper has visual implications. Not enough unity and you have chaos. Too much unity and you get bored." She suggests playing with the thickness and thinness of lines, "this creates a lively variation of line ... not copying nature in detail, but in essence."

Our thanks to Breanne for her wonderful poses last night.

Snowed Out

Life drawing will be cancelled for tonight. It's still snowing and parking in town is always a bigger problem than the roads.

Stay warm and I hope to see you all on March 24th. Once again - COME ON SPRING!

Blast

It was a great night with a good crowd of artists. Our thanks to Chris for wonderful, inspiring poses. Also, a special thank you to Matt for recording our frustration with a dynamic pose!

We are expecting another "Arctic Blast" to come through - in fact, it's probably snowing as you read this! Check the blog before you leave for drawing to make sure we're still on for tonight. Emily will be posing if the snow misses us.

Thanks to all who continue to support our "cause" to keep life drawing available to everyone.
