Wednesday--(Hipbone Studio)

I'm back to Hipbone Studio today after a couple of weeks. The 5 minute drawing above was my favorite from the session. I know that I often write: "this may be the best model we've ever had"! But, really.....this may be the best model we've ever had! The artist next to me remarked, "she's a goddess" and indeed she is. She had exquisite features and she was super-graceful.

On sent un réel plaisir que d'avoir eu cette jeune femme comme modèle...
Somme toute, l'ensemble de vos esquisses nous laisse entrevoir cette satisfaction d'avoir croqué ces différentes poses. Un excellent travail... sans oublier... celui du poignet !!

Gros bisous.

I see your response to her is very positive. Nothing speaks better of a person than to have "grace;" a gift.

I predict you'll be enthused about this for many paintings - you are now the gifted receiver.

These are wonderful drawings and I love your armchair from several days ago.

I hope Daisy is well.

All in all, all your sketches suggests that satisfaction we have sketched these different poses. Excellent work ... well ... the wrist!

Big hugs.

(Thanks, Martine!)

I really like the last you posted. I must say that your feet have to be the best ever. Excellent job on those and with the foreshortening. You amaze always, my friend.

Dan Kent said...

These are excellent sketches - they say this is a real person. Yeah!

And I agree with Crimson about the feet!!

You did a great job with these! And I give you credit for participating in the live figure drawing session! I'm still working up to that.

Awesome sketches. Thanks for sharing!

I can always pick out your sketches by your handsome mark-making. It's so full of good design and "grace".

She is something special. A model like that energizes a class. All your drawings are exciting. A very good day I would say.
