Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter from weekending July 6

I cancelled the last week of my life drawing group until the start of the new term due to poor attendance, hopefully it will pick up next term.


So some from the Blue Mountains Group on Friday

Re: from weekending July 6

I hope the sessions will resume regularly

I find them all beautiful, the third last, charcoal, I think it seems to stand out from the screen, perhaps due to impressive shading, for objects, I don't know exactly, for the whole I would say it's a masterpiece. to be framed.
all the wonderful works and it's always nice to see these different media together and the various types of gestures. thanks for sharing

Lovely lines in these. That final charcoal(?) of the model's back is an intriguing one. Nice portrait too.
I'd love to join your group, Mac, but it's a bit of a trek out to Oz for the session.....

I'm seeing more 'edgy' poses, is that a good thing? I'm used to pictures of the classical poses. Now there is the acrobatic stuff. Maybe I'm just old.

Is this decline in attendance normal?

Around here you CAN'T find live drawing sessions because of the prevailing attitude about 'art' and 'nudity' in this part of the country (Kentucky, USA).

Re: from weekending July 6

You obviously have an excellent understanding of anatomy Mac, the body shapes and simple shading prove it

Re: from weekending July 6

I'm sure the sessions will pick up Joe, I'm running them by school terms so we were going to have a winter break anyway... glad you liked the drawings.

thanks Harry, I was going to use w/c for that pose but felt it wouldn't suit it and switched to charcoal instead... and there's always room here if you do happen to be driving by

Kristy, I guess by edgy you mean the lines, the only way I really know how to depict the gesture of the shorter poses... or the nature of the poses? the models usually try to be more dynamic with the quicker poses and becoming more static or 'classical?' a they get longer.

I have noticed many life drawing groups struggle to maintain constant numbers especially the evening ones, but the daytime group I go to always seems to be full!

thanks David, I may not know all the bones and muscles but I have a fair idea of how things are supposed to look!

Mac

Nicely done, Mac! I like the charcoal tilted-head male so much!

thanks Bethany, I find with charcoal I sometimes need that slightly longer pose to be able to be able to develop a more expressive drawing!
