I’ll try to be a bit more selective regarding posting these watercolors for fear of overkill.
A very noble 25 minute pose.
This one is from today (Sunday). I filled in as monitor for todays session. Setting up the room, the benches, the light, etc. making sure the model had what she needed and running the timer on the poses. As a result I have an even more profound respect for Vandra, our regular monitor, and the effort she puts into every weeks sessions. Twice a week, not counting her Monday night anatomy drawing class. Anyway, my productivity was less than it should have been but that’s not a fault of playing monitor. I did use the 90 degree rule and did this watercolor caricature of a fellow artist.
This is Scott Story, creator, artist and co-writer of Johnny Saturn, an excellent webcomic that is getting a lot of attention in the comics fan community. The comic is co-written by Scott’s wife Benita Story. And no, Scott doesn’t wear a Captain America tunic to open model sessions. (What he wears in his own studio is his own affair!) I painted him thusly as a reference to a comment made on his blog so don’t expect to understand it!
