4th Entry for Apr 10, 2011

Most of the studies documented on this blog are very short and direct. But for people who are interested in investigating doing longer figure drawings of their own, I will be teaching a workshop from 9 a.m to 4 p.m daily May 16 -20 over at the TSA.  It's called "Bodies in Context".  Each day features a different model, set up in a tableau with props and backdrop elements, to explore narrative and symbolic  situations.  Good figure drawing practice, lots of time for one-on-one feedback and coaching, and an excellent opportunity to consider content - and the meaning of figures - within your work.
There are a couple of places left, and for details, check in at the TSA's website.

These longer poses finished the evening.  The top two are 15-minute studies, while the bottom two are 20 minutes each. The topmost one is charcoal on 18 x 24" cartridge paper, and the others are all charcoal on 18 x 24" sheets of different types of Japanese paper.
