This is my fourth live figure drawing. I'm pretty pleased. The gentleman was from Trinidad and had a wonderful accent. He was also a great model and held very still (and it was his first time!). I spoke to the woman monitoring because I overheard her conversation about trying to get other monitors. Originally, the Sat clothed figure drawing for July and August were canceled because she's been monitoring for 5 years and didn't want the obligation every Saturday for the summer. Several members are trying to relieve her and rotate so that the sessions can continue. Well I also heard her talking about needing models so I told her if she needed models, I wouldn't mind doing it but I don't want to do the nude modeling. So I don't know if I'll do it once and they'll never want me to come back or if I can be someone's muse. Anyway, back to today's session, the model was fantastic and I'm really happy with my work, especially considering this is my fourth live model. :) Even the model liked it and took a picture on his phone for himself!
I took a reference photo and my work on it some more. I would like to put more into the background and some detain in the small amount of shirt that is visible. I would love to hear any comments!
