Entry for May 7, 2014

Last week the special 6-week costume and clothing class started at the TSA, on May 22nd.
In advance of that I was looking to post some promotional images of people in clothes on Facebook, and all I had were fast studies, from aerial sessions, Collective nights and Sketchys/Toons sessions.

In search of an extended study, I went over to the Arts and Letters club on the Wednesday morning, It is an ornate old building with a long arts history. They have back to back 2-hour sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays during the day (so 4 hours each day, with a lunch pause. It's open to non-members, and each 2-hour stretch is $10. Models work 2 to 3 weeks in the same pose(but different ones Wed & Fri.) and a lot of them - but not all-  are clothed. Drawing happens up on the 3rd floor in a nice old room. If you go, you have to buzz the front door to be admitted, though.
This is a 1.5 hour study of Kit using water-soluble pencil and water-soluble graphite washes on 18 x 24 Canson Montval watercolour paper.
