A big crowd turned out for model drawing Monday night. A last minute model change and some new artists made for an exhilarating evening.

Better With Age

I don't think our model Monday night would take offense at being referred to as an older gentleman. J. Wayne Higgs has posed for our group many times and is always popular with the artists.  Where figure modeling is concerned age adds levels of interest. 

Our next session will be Monday, February 13th and will feature a female model.

Deep Freeze


A hardy group of artists made their way to figure drawing Monday night. The outside temperature at starting time was in the single digits. Inside four space heaters combined with eleven 98.6 degree bodies (one naked thank you) made conditions workable. The adversity added to the congenial mood of the room and some terrific drawing resulted.

Our next session will be Monday, January 23rd at 7:00pm. We will host a male model.

Nick of Time

Our model Monday night arrived just in the nick of time. She had to travel some distance and was clearly in need of a moment to collect herself. With artists anxious to get to work it was decided to incorporate her quiet cup of coffee into a short first pose with warmups to follow. 

Fredericksburg Figure Drawing 2017 sessions will start Monday, January 9th at 7:00. There will be a female model. Happy new year to all!

Twice the Fun

Working from the live figure is always a challenge. Add a second model and things get very interesting very quickly. 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.
