Life Drawing – Ecorche

life-drawing-1

I’m nearing the end of Life Drawing III and it’s been a great quarter, but it’s still hard to find enough time to paint. We’re working on more complex figures and also doing some ecorche drawings (they show muscles without skin) in more dynamic poses.

Yesterday I also went to my first meeting of the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Artists. It’s one of the oldest art associations in the United States.  It’s an accomplished group and we learned a lot. The guest speaker is David Gray whose painting work I admire. He was very down to earth and very generous with sharing techniques and practical tips. I’ll embed a video of him painting a self-portrait. For now, I am focusing on watermedia, but I’d like explore oil. PSGart meets monthly in Kirkland.
