Lisa H.

The Following I met a new model name Lisa... she was referred by the model Lina. I can't remember the last time I left with so many sketches I was happy with.

October 27, 2015 - Tara Rising!

I was at my usual Tuesday Chinatown/Soho group and good ole' Tara Ashleigh was our model for the evening. And I have to say it was a great session full of unsuspecting good drawings.

I am happy to post my 3 minute sketches
 I especially like the on the far upper left with the hand to her face... I feel like I captured her personality.

 Ms. Ashleigh is an amazing woman, model and friend. She has the body and grace of woman who stepped out of a Renaissance Painting

..... She does remind me of the Eve is in this painting. She is someone I always enjoyed drawing, spending time and talking too.  She is long overdue for a painting.

Dana Barry

On Sunday Night, October 25th I went to "Drink & Draw" and Jerry's International Palette Shop.
We had Dana Barry as a model. I first saw this model at the prior session not as a model but as an artist. 
 10 Min


Long repeated pose

She was wonderful to work with and would like to work with her again in the future.

October 6, 2015 - Claudia Awakens

Ok so for my Claudia post's I've been using Star Wars titles if you caught on. So that week I was originally was supposed to be in Savannah on vacation but unfortunately had to postpone the trip but in the meantime I got to draw the extremely graceful Claudia who was sporting a cute pixie cut.

Lina Returns - September 29, 2015

This past Tuesday at the Chinatown/Soho drawing sessions had the honor and pleasure of drawing once again the very talented Lina.

Tea Eaton - September 27, 2015 - Return to where it started

The Drink & Draw which I mentioned often in my earliest posts had returned this summer to a new home at Jerry's Art & Palette Shop in Union Sq.  It was a real treat to once again draw one of my early favorites Tea Eaton.

5 min. Warm ups

 10 Mins

 15 Mins
 We were down to our last pose it has been a while since I've done the repeated pose. And like I stated in my previous post on  Tea Eaton it is very difficult to color dark skinned women but I tried a different approach and a different set of colored pencils (one I bought when I went to Poland two summers ago). And I never thought I would outshine my earliest color sketch of her.
It was great to have the Drink & Draw back although I was disappointed with the setup because the models were sinking in the blankets on the model stand that I couldn't see their feet (a part I really like to draw).

Vassilea - September 22, 2015

The Authentic Greek Muse returns once again.
