6th entry for Aug 15, 2010

After a longer break, we worked in some more 1-minute poses. These always turn out better once I've warmed up.

These are 10-minutes studies.

4th Entry for Aug. 15, 2010

I went back that evening after a bit more rest. M- was working this time. These are a couple of 5-minute poses and a 10-minute one that she did.

3rd Entry for Aug. 15, 2010

This was a 15-minute pose, and the only other study worth posting. The others were a little too awkwardly drawn for my tastes.

These were a 10-minute pose below, and a 15-minute one above.

1st entry for Aug 15, 2010

The Sunday marked the return from a really delightful trip to Montreal with Z- . That morning, after a few hours sleep I was restless enough that I headed over to the TSA, where S - was working, and set into some drawing. These were 10-minute poses.

1st entry for Aug 8, 2010

On the Sunday morning I went in for a bit of drawing. A- was working that day, and these are a 1-minute and some 5-minute studies as I was waking up.

8th Entry for Aug 1, 2010

These two 15-minute poses wrapped up the evening. The standing figure worked all right from head to waist, but the legs I set down are a little too short, and don't adequately convey a sense of bearing C- weight.

After a longer break, we continued with some more 1-minute poses.

5th entry for Aug 1, 2010

Below are two 5-minute and above three 10-minute poses. C- is a model who I had not drawn before. In the partial figure with arms crossed, she was trying to look stern. I didn't know that while drawing, and was debating about softening the set of her mouth, but felt it better to stay true to the expression I was seeing.

Which speaks a bit about my assumptions, that people would want to be depicted in the spectrum from calm to happy, but not in `negative' states like anger or unhappiness. ( though melancholy holds a place of poignancy in my mind, and thus okay to depict someone as such). A bite for thought, that.

These were 1-minute poses as well

On Sunday evening, C- was working. These were 1-minute poses

2nd entry for Aug 1, 2010

These were 15-minute poses. In ways, I was additionally disappointed that these were the studies spilled on because I felt they were quite strong ones. But in retrospect, the fact that they are quite well-realised makes them able to withstand the interference.
