Life Drawing March 25

I have had a terrible flu, with a cough preventing sleep for almost two weeks. Last night was the first night I got to sleep before 2:00, and I slept through the night. I felt like a new man.

And it's Thursday, so the Life Drawing Studio is in session in Carrboro. Oldest could come with me this time - a happy alignment of a tiny gap in his major college projects (NCSU College of Art and Design) and getting home in time to catch me.

We drew T this evening - my second male model since college. His poses were interesting, and I got into a fairly good groove right away.

These were two of the 5 minute poses, an 11 minute pose, and two 25 minute poses. Sometimes the shorter ones turn out better - no time to fuss.

As Oldest put it, "The last is usually the best, and you wish there could be just one more, but after two hours you know it would kill you, so..."

Umber and white nupastel on brown kraft paper - 18 x 24 inches.

This is a very nice series of drawings you've done this time. Naturally, the last one is best technically but they all have merit. It appears you're becoming more relaxed and focused all the time.

I'm sorry you've been so ill and do hope you're on the road to recovery now.

Wow. You've been practicing. I like these.

I hope you are fully back on your feet soon.

That's very cool - I can't imagine getting that much done with pencils in such a short time.
