Tired and Figure Studies


I went to a figure studies class last night. The one I used to go to in Columbia had easels set up so people could paint, but at this one it's just chairs, so I pretty much just draw in my sketch book. The first one is short warm-up poses, the second one is 8 or so minute poses, and the last one is 15 minute poses. I kinda ruined the second one with the highlighters, but I think I'm going to try that again next time with watercolors!

Awesome, man. Are those classes through a local college or art museum or something?

Yeah these are tight. those 15 minutes sketches are for sure the best, but those high lighters are amazing!

thanks dudes! and it's just run by a local art group matt. there are a few run by colleges and museums, but you gotta find a cool group to make it fun.
