1st entry for June 11 2010

The Friday was a much better drawing night. L- was working, and these are two 5-minute studies below, and three 10-minute ones above.

Entry for June 10, 2010

On the Thursday I got out for a small amount of drawing at the TSA. K- was working that night, and these were all in the 10-minute and 15-minute range.

(not one of my stronger drawing night, through no fault of K- .)

5th entry for June 8, 2010

These ware a 10-minute and a 15-minute pose that finished that evening. I still felt that my drawing was less `connected' than it often is.

3rd Entry for June 8, 2010

These were 3-minute poses.

2nd Entry for June 8, 2010

These were 2-minute poses. I have a theory that the degree of focus in my life drawing is adversely affected by 3 principal factors- level of fatigue, poor health and absorption in non-figurative studio projects. The last of those is a willing shift of priorities, while the first two are more discomfiting. That week the drawing was all a bit `off', I felt, and I think it was due to a touch of some low-grade bug in my system.

1st entry for June 8 2010

On the Tuesday, S- was at Diane's studio. These were a 30-second and two 1-minute poses of hers.

Entry for June 6, 2010

I made it in for part of the morning session at the TSA, where A- was working. The lower two studies were 10 minutes, and I was still waking up. The other three were 15 minutes each, and the shading worked well on them. They have an early -mid 20th century feeling, both in pose and shading, for me.

2nd Entry for June 4, 2010

These were all in the 15-minute range, and finished off the evening ( the standing pose might have been a 20-minute one).

1st entry for June 4 2010

I was back in drawing on Friday. D- was working that night. These are a 5-minute full-figure study below and three 10-minute studies above where I fussed over facial features with varying degrees of success.
I had taught a class focusing on hands the week before, and the hands were well -described in these studies.

5th entry for June 1, 2010

These two 10-minute poses finished that evening. The lower one was the final pose, and I was starting to get tired at that point. Looking back, while there were a fair number of studies from that evening I was unsatisfied with, the ones that worked by and large worked better than usual.

4th Entry for June 1, 2010

These were 5-minute poses that C- took.

3rd Entry for June 1, 2010

These were 3-minute poses.
