Study of Wendell

Study of Wendell, 18”x24”, charcoal, graphite, and white chalk on gray paperWe have just finished a 4-week, 20-hour pose by the amazing Wendell Wilson who was an excellent, rock-steady model for us.

This pose was for the Monday non-instructed Model Session. The sessions will pause for the summer starting in late June, but will be starting back up in September, please join us!

Also, we just had ONE spot become available in my Drawing Fundamentals class, 6 Sundays beginning May 15. The spots tend to fill quickly and I won’t be offering this class again until 2012, so sign up now:

Absolutely marvelous drawing Sadie... is amazing to see how you always improve yourself
I specially love the legs and feet... they are so hard! Have you worked first with charcoal and graphite later for detailed modeling?

I have been admiring your work for some time—inspiring. I was somewhat surprised to see such exceptional detail in your figure drawing considering the materials you're using. I would be expecting pencil. It would be nice to hear you elaborate on the technique someday. Thank you for a wonderful article on varnishing. Your blog is just a treasury of information. Thank you.
