A few new drawings from life at Tony Ryder School

Above is at about 1 week's progress on Adam - this is my most recent figure in graphite - I am pleased with this work - have another week to go on him - we'll see where it gets .. (hand just roughed in on Friday)

Above is a one week pose of Joaquin - this drawing was a bit of a break-through in some of the methods at the Tony Ryder School for me .. improved upon in the drawing of Adam above!  Great help in these last two months from Tony and Anna and a great speedy pep talk from Colt helped me over a hurdle.. still all kinds of things unresolved here so .. you know - unfinished!

Above a quick 2.5 hour drawing of Adam on toned paper and white chalk..
Above about 1.5 hours of Abby a fellow student who posed on thursday night (student volunteer posing)..

a few new drawings and paintings..

I got to paint with Tomutsu's class on Monday - super fun - we watched Burt Silverman's "My Friend Wes" demo first ( and if that's not enough to screw you up) we only had about 3.5 hours to paint..  on gesso-board  10 x 12".. never paintined on gesso board - very smooth but with a light tooth..   I think Tomutsu was pleased !

Above a very short allaprima painting from Henry's this summer ;  the original painting ( you can see remants upside down of the figure) just crashed so I flipped it over and restarted..  warm and cool play of light was fun..about 1.5 hours

above Veronique - a great model - 20 minutes at MCCLA on friday night

back pose in repose ?  20 minutes Veronique..

Hare are a few new things from my time at Tony Ryder's school.  I am loving what I am learning about how to draw what I am seeing.. convexity, shadow behavior, light and shaping my strokes ( this is all not easy!)..

my toned drawings are less easy to photograph.. will work on that.. below Maribou about 2 plus hours on tuesday..

Eli - great model - about 6 hours I think..

above another figure from this week.. an allaprima painting of Sarah P on mylar ( first time trying it) - about 3 hours and a 1.5 hour graphite gesture of Sarah P..
