Once again, drawing the other artists when the model fails to satisfy.
Okay, maybe there are more than one “best” model in this town. Let’s just say these are among the best models in town. This young lady has appeared in several of these Thursday night blog entries (but you wouldn’t know it from the facial variations I’ve given her). I still stayed with the full figure composition since that seems to be going well. This time I remembered the “trick” of positioning the canvas so I could simply draw mental “plumb lines” horizontally from the actual model onto my canvas pad. Worked pretty well.
We had set up some nicely dramatic lighting that night, plus that wonderful purple fabric!
And I got the feet in!
A model who encouraged focusing on his head.
And then I focused on one of my fellow artists on the other side of the room.
