So...I haven't posted for a couple of weeks because we've been traveling on the weekends--skipping art class. A new low, I know. Anyway, I was pleased to see a new model in the studio today. She presented a whole new anatomy of forms and poses (pardon the pun). It was nice. Men's complex musculature doesn't quite provide the same satisfaction that a curvy female form does.
This time around I decided to exercise a different section of my artistic mind. Instead of aggravating my already feverish penchant for detail and perfection by focusing on one piece, for this session I elected to use a variety of different sketching methods from a number of different angles. The sketches are thus more unfinished but at the same time more suggestive, having lasted at the most 15-20min. The continuous line sketches (that's right, no unbroken lines--like a long spaghetti noodle) actually lasted about a minute or so.
